Summer grads reminisce about time spent at UF


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Writer

This summer, 731 undergradu-
ate students shook hands, took pho-
tos and moved their tassels at the
O'Connell Center.
While 966 former undergradu-
ate students received degrees, only
731 of them actually attended the
graduation ceremonies on Aug. 7,
said Mary Ann Hagler, who works
in UF's registrar's office.
Chris Jarrett, who graduated with
a computer engineering degree, said
he thinks all students should attend
their graduation ceremonies be-
cause it allows families to celebrate
with the students. He said it was
worth waiting during the ceremony.
In total, about 8,000 programs were
printed for the 10 a.m.
Student graduate students' cer-
Life emony and the 2 p.m.
undergraduate stu-
dents' ceremony, Hagler said.
Some students at the ceremony
decorated their caps with rhine-
stones, paint, images or other crafts.
One message written in orange and
blue said, "Thanks Mom 'n' Dad."
Some caps had religious messages,
and others praised the Gators' ath-
letic achievements.
Some students were awarded
golden medallions to mark their
status as Golden UF Tradition Keep-
ers, which means they completed 40
recommended traditions in the UF
Alumni Association's F Book.
Each of the students' tassels were


colored to indicate which college
they were graduating from.
Channing Mims, a 23-year-old
family, youth and community sci-
ences graduate, said she was mo-
tivated to finish her degree by her
desire to earn her diploma and not
fail.
"I had the strength of my parents


behind me," she said. "My parents
cheered me on, telling me, 'You can
finish this; you'll be one of a couple
of people in your family with a col-
lege degree.'"
Although Mims, an only child,
said she is one of the few people
she knows who didn't come to UF
for the sports, she said she remem-


bers when the Gators won the men's
basketball national championship in
2006.
"I remember being in my dorm
room and seeing everyone storm the
streets," she said.
She lived in a dorm for her first
two years, and while she recom-
mends others live in a dorm for their

College is a marathon of hard work, stress, fun and new experiences. Graduation day is the finish line.


first year, she said it's a good idea to
move to an off-campus apartment.
One of the biggest surprises at
UF, she said, was the number of stu-
dents.
"It was a bit overwhelming see-
ing all the students there. Until you
actually experience and see it, you
don't really know."
Her advice to freshmen: "Defi-
nitely join some of the organiza-
tions. I didn't do that, but I had a lot
of friends that did and they really
loved that."
Mims is staying in Gainesville
and working at the Alachua County
Humane Society, but she said she
would like to eventually go to grad-
uate school.
Jarrett's favorite memories at UF
were at the football games.
"Saturdays in the fall were the
best time of year," he said.
Jarrett, along with many of the
graduates, arrived at UF in 2006, a
year that UF won both the football
and men's basketball national cham-
pionships. The school has changed
since 2006, he said.
"I think the school's gotten more
academic-oriented," he said. "Back
then, it was more of a party school."
Twenty-three undergraduate
students were awarded their degree
with highest honors, summa cum
laude, Hagler said. The require-
ments for summa cum laude honors
varies by college, but most require a
research project and a GPA around
3.8.
Fall graduation ceremonies will
occur Dec. 17 and 18.

Drinking, parking top list of gameday problems


Tens of thousands of people come to town for football


By COLIN SIMMONS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Come fall, when the Gators
play in front of more than 90,000
screaming fans at Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium, there will be about 200
police officers patrolling the cam-
pus who won't be too concerned
with the scoreboard.
The officers, who come from
the University Police Depart-
ment, the Gainesville Police De-
partment, the Alachua County
Sheriff's Office and the Florida
Highway Patrol, are focused on


ensuring the safety of the tens
of thousands of fans who come
out to watch UF's storied football
team.
During any other time of the
year, officers would not hesitate
to arrest anyone on campus with
an open container of alcohol, as
mandated by city ordinance.
But with the large influx of rev-
elers and the carnival-like atmo-
sphere that envelopes Gainesville
on game day, the city's open-con-
tainer ordinance is not UPD offi-
cers' main concern, said Capt. Jeff
Holcomb, spokesman for UPD.


"If you're over 21 and you're
drinking at your parking spot, it's
not our focus," Holcomb said.
What UPD is concerned about
enforcing, he said, are underage
drinking violations and drink-
ing environments that are out of
control, such as kegs or excessive
amounts of liquor on campus.
If kegs or excessive amounts
of alcohol are found, officers will
ask that the liquor be removed. If
violators don't comply, officers
will give them a written arrest,
he said.
However, this is not a city-

wide policy.
Once students cross University
Avenue and leave campus, open
container and underage drinking
violations are strictly enforced
by the Gainesville Police Depart-
ment, he said.
Those who are caught with an
open container off campus risk
getting a written arrest or worse,
depending on the violator's de-
meanor and compliance with of-
ficers, Holcomb said.
"They are very pro-arrest," he
said, referring to GPD officers.
It's also important for stu-
dents on game days to remember
to stow away valuables such as
iPods, cell phones and other elec-
tronics, he said, or they may be
stolen.
"Parents call in every year and
ask what the top five crimes on
campus are," he said. "It's theft,
theft, theft, theft and theft."
Students also need to be aware
of the changes in parking and
driving policies around campus
to accommodate the influx of
traffic, he said.
Gale Lemerand Drive, which
runs north-south through the
middle of campus, closes two
hours before kickoff, and no cars
are allowed to drive on Gale Le-
merand between University Av-
enue and Stadium Road until the
game ends.
Additionally, parking around
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is on a
first-come, first-served basis, and
parking on the sidewalks or grass
is prohibited.
People who park on campus
illegally risk getting their cars


towed, according to the UF Ath-
letic Association's website, gator-
zone.com.
Off-campus, tenets, landlords
and business owners can apply
for a permit with the city that al-
lows them to sell parking spaces
on their property during game
weekends, the homecoming pa-
rade and Gator Growl.
According to the City of
Gainesville website, the yard-
parking business tax is an annual
fee that went into effect last year.
Landlords and business own-
ers who want to sell parking spots
on their properties are charged
the tax, which ranges from $26.25
to $157.50, depending on the loca-
tion of the property as well as the
number of parking spots owners
intend to sell.
Jennifer Bush, who owns Jerry
Bush Auto Repair with her fa-
ther, Jerry, has been selling park-
ing spots on the property for the
last 15 years.
She said she doesn't mind
paying the tax because it pre-
vents people from trying to sell
parking spaces on property they
don't own.
On an average game day, Bush
sells between 30 and 60 parking
spots.
An available bathroom in the
front office of the auto repair
shop, as well as a garage to safely
keep cars overnight if the owners
don't return, are added incentives
for people to park on the lot. It's
also a good spot to tailgate, she
said.
"We get some people from the
other team and some from here,
but they get along real well," she
said.

Editorial

Freshman Fun

Some friendly advice

from the Alligator

UF is a big place, and as your unofficial welcoming
committee, we're going to pass along a few tips to
help you incoming freshman get accommodated a
little quicker than we did.
First off, tell that little voice inside your head to shut up
so you can listen to our nickels worth of free advice. We
know a lot of you are still high off getting 30 hours of Ad-
vanced Placement credit and think you're going to make it
out of here in 3 years, but that's a horrible idea. Go ahead
and take the whole 4 years and sign up for something fun
like History of Rock and Roll. Maybe it'll be a tough sell
to your parents, but trust us when we say loading your
schedules down with math and science classes is a one-
way ticket to dullsville.
Make sure you never carry around a map, either. Un-
less you are looking for buried treasure, there is really no
way to pull off looking cool while carting around a hast-
ily-printed, black and white Google Maps representation
of UF campus. Instead, just ask someone to point you in
the right direction. It's a great way to meet new people
and drop that freshman timidity. Just make sure to avoid
asking anyone dressed as a zombie or Pentecostal zealot
- those idiots are just dying for attention.
Remember, never pay any of those people on Turling-
ton Plaza any attention whatsoever. It may be tempting to
tell them how wrong and homophobic they are, but they
are stuck in their ways and there is nothing you can ac-
complish by yelling back at them, except encouragement.
Also, learn how to cook something. Anything, really.
We know you're probably used to having mom and dad
do that for you, and the adjustment will take some time,
but nothing is worse for you in the long run than getting
accustomed to running over to Pita Pit or Pizza by the Slice
for dinner at 1:30 in the morning. If you can fit in a trip
to Publix every few days, you might just be able to spare
yourself from gaining that dreaded "Freshman 15."
Speaking of weight gain, you should probably try to
avoid alcohol and drugs for as long as humanly possible.
Not only are these substances the gateway to bad deci-
sions, but having anything of the sort in your dorm room
is a sure-fire way to crush your dreams of getting into law
or medical school after you finish undergrad. Take it from
experience, you don't want your first phone call home to
be a tear-filled confession about getting your first strike.
Working hard and staying out of trouble seems the best
route for success, but you have no idea where you'll be
four years from now, so be flexible to change. You might
be unemployed in a horrible job market with no hope of
doing what you want with your life, like everyone's been
predicting for our generation. Or, you might be a beam-
ing med student at one of the nation's top universities. Or,
you might take a year off to relax, travel and see the world
before figuring out your life. Anything is possible.
So make sure to have some fun. There's no point in
working so hard toward your future that you can't enjoy
the present. We're not suggesting that you do out drink-
ing the night before an exam, but we are saying to take the
time to schedule in some downtime. Do all the things you
want to do while a combination of your parents' money
and Bright Futures scholarship is still footing the bill.

Take advantage of
Welcome to UF. You are now a student at the
flagship academic institution of the state of
Florida. With a University of Florida degree,
you have endless career opportunities and a promising
shot at some of the nation's top graduate programs.
Prepare to settle in for four or five years.
Gainesville is certainly no Las Vegas, but there are
plenty of ways to entertain and be entertained. The
peculiarities of the city are best discovered by haphaz-
ard means. Spend some time walking around campus,
downtown and by the prairie.
Bolen Bluff trail, just south of Payne's Prairie, is one
of the best nature walks the city has to offer. A 20 min-
ute walk through the forest spills out onto an indescrib-
ably serene plateau with an abundance of wildlife.
For the music lover, Gainesville has countless concert
halls, music venues and live-performance bar settings.
All types of bands roll through Gainesville throughout
the year, and the particularly savvy music enthusiast
has a wide array of entertainment to choose from.
One of my favorite features of Gainesville is its cen-
tral location in the state. Within two hours, you can be
in Tampa, Orlando or Jacksonville for a weekend get-
away. An hour and a half drive east will bring the oc-
casional traveler to St. Augustine, the perfect night trip
for stargazing or beach camping.
Campus life can be very rewarding, if one is ambi-
tious and bold enough to throw themselves into in-
volvement opportunities.
For a new student, involvement can be intimidating,
but well worth the muster of courage necessary to try
something new.
There is a club or organization for just about any-


time in Gainesville
thing. I believe UF hosts over 800
different clubs yearly.
The Greek system is also a great
way to experience thick camarade-
rie and make a solid group of dedi-
cated friends.
Bryan Griffin Student political organizations,
letters@alligatororg like the College Republicans, the
College Democrats or Student
Government's Student Senate offer a chance to become
familiarized with citizen activism, which is, in my opin-
ion, an under-appreciated trait of the well-rounded in-
dividual.
Finally, there are programs through Florida Blue Key
and its partnerships that are wholly oriented toward as-
piring new-student leaders, information about which
can be found in Room 365 of the Reitz Union.
Of course, as a Gator, we all get plenty of exposure to
premiere academic sporting events.
Game days in Gainesville are city-wide celebrations,
and homecoming is an experience one will not easily
forget.
Also, don't forget to come out and celebrate the
Gator Nation with all of your classmates and friends at
this year's Gator Growl on Oct. 15.
With so many things to look forward to about being a
Gator and making the most of your time in Gainesville,
there really won't be enough time to be bored or unhap-
py. Find the activity niche that fits with your personal-
ity, and use it to build yourself into the well-rounded
adult that society will expect you to be upon gradua-
tion.

Welcome to the University of Florida and The Gator
Nation!
You should know right off the bat that you are
exceptional in a number of ways, not the least of which is
your academic track record.
Consider these statistics:
Nearly 28,000 people applied to UF this year.
The roughly 6,400 students who will make up this fall's
freshman class are expected to have an average GPA ap-
proaching 4.1 and an average SAT score of about 1900.
With numbers like those, you could have chosen any

be glad you did, too.
Make no mistake, UF is a big place, but don't let that in-

have more choices. Think of it like the iPhone: There's an

Speaking Out For starters, you've selected one
of the most comprehensive universi-
ties in the country. With 100 under-
graduate degree programs, 200 graduate degree programs
and more than 30 combined degree programs, it's fair to say
that if you want to study it, there's a good chance we offer
it.
If the idea of international travel appeals to you, UF has
an extensive and growing study-abroad program with ties
to universities in Europe, Asia and Africa and international
centers in Beijing and Paris.

(Of course they're real; I couldn't possibly make those up.)
For you Harry Potter fans, there's even Quidditch.
But as anyone will tell you, the benefits of a college edu-

bonds and relationships you build now will last a lifetime,
and there's no better time to start creating them.
Graduation seems light years away to you now, but it
will be here before you know it. (I've seen a few graduations
so I know.) When you finally have that hard-earned degree
in hand, you'll be joining another very special group: UF
alumni. Their ranks include governors and senators, athletes
and astronauts, journalists and scientists - in other words,
people who are making a real difference in the world.
After all, that's what Gators do.
Have a fantastic year, and Go Gators!

Cultural attractions worth a visit


By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Writer

As a college student in
Gainesville, you'll likely discover
that the nightlife is the main at-
traction.
But that shouldn't stop you
from hitting the town in the day-
time and early evening, either.
Gainesville's got cultural and his-
toric landmarks worth visiting.
The Hippodrome State Theatre
in downtown Gainesville, com-
monly known as "The Hipp,"
hosts both plays and movies.
The main auditorium, where
the plays are held, seats 266 peo-
ple and recently hosted two pop-
ular shows, "The Great American


Trailer Park Musical" and "Shear
Madness."
The movie theater, which seats
80, hosts independent films that
you won't find at mainstream cin-
emas. It will also re-run some in-
die films after their original runs
in theaters expire.
The building was built in 1911
and served as both a post office
and a courthouse. In 1972, it was
converted into a theater. The
building, which features six large
Corinthian columns, also contains
one of the oldest manual elevators
in the state.
"It's a really neat old build-
ing," said Tony Farah, an employ-
ee at the theater. "The architecture
alone adds to the theatrical expe-

Street, is part of UF's Cultural Plaza.


rience. And the actors are very
devoted to their roles, so it makes
each play a completely new expe-
rience from the last."
The Thomas Center, located at
302 NE 6th Ave., was originally a
home built for former Gainesvile
mayor William Thomas in 1910.
Thomas played a key role in se-
curing the city as UF's home by
donating about 500 acres to entice
the state to choose Gainesville for
the university.
The center was converted into a
hotel in 1928 and in 1972, the city
planned to demolish it. A resis-
tance campaign saved it and the
City of Gainesville purchased the
property. The 100 year-old build-
ing hosts piano recitals, weddings
and art and history exhibits.

"The butterfly museum is
unlike anything I've ever
seen before."
Dan Deep
Gainesville resident

Although hanging at a mu-
seum may not seem like the most
interesting activity, Gainesville is
home to the state's official nation-
al history museum and one of the
largest university museums in the
Southeast.
The Florida Museum of Natu-
ral History is a place that typically
stands out not only because of its
traveling exhibits, fossil collec-

tions and skeletons, but because
of the Butterfly Rainforest.
In the Butterfly Rainforest,
you can walk around in a giant
screened room filled with plants
that support up to 80 species of
butterflies, according to the ex-
hibit's website.
"The butterfly museum is un-
like anything I've ever seen be-
fore," said Dan Deep, a Gainesville
resident who will be enrolling at
UF this year. "Just the amount of
butterflies in there was enough to
make my head spin."
There are also live butterfly
releases on weekends between 2
p.m. and 4 p.m. Additionally, the
museum sells butterfly-attracting
plants on Fridays, Saturdays and
Sunday. The museum features
10 plants each week, along with


at least one unannounced species.
Proceeds benefit the exhibit.
The other museum to check out
is the Harn Museum of Art, which
contains about 7,000 works of
art. In 2009, the museum added a
26,000-square-foot wing dedicated
specifically to Asian art. The mu-
seum also hosts events such as the
Student Government-sponsored
Museum Nights, which open the
museum up from 5 p.m. until 9
p.m. and features guest lecturers
and guided tours.
The Phillips Center for the Per-
forming Arts is adjacent to the
Harn in UF's Cultural Plaza. The
center has played host to a vari-
ety of acts, from a touring Chinese
drum group, to the legendary reg-
gae group the Wailers, to comedi-
ans such as Jerry Seinfeld.

GREEK LIFE

Common perception of Greeks more myth than reality


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

The Delta Tau Chi Fraternity at Faber Col-
lege is more fantasy than reality.
The toga parties, elaborate hazing cer-
emonies and food fights do not accurately
reflect what Greek life is really about.
About 2,000 students will partake in re-
cruitment for one of the four Greek councils
this year, adding to the nearly 5,000 students
who make up the Greek community at UF.
Together, members of the Interfraternity
Council, the Panhellenic Council, the Mul-
ticultural Greek Council and the National
Pan-Hellenic Council account for about 15
percent of the UF student body population,
according to Jack Causseaux, associate direc-
tor of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs.
Formal recruitment for the Panhellenic
Council is fast approaching, and recruitment
for the other three councils is not far behind.
Students who are at all interested in join-
ing a Greek chapter during their time at UF
should start looking into gathering more
information and rushing a sorority or frater-
nity, Causseaux said.
"It's an experience a lot of people take ad-
vantage of," he said.
The cost of joining a fraternity or sorority
varies from chapter to chapter, although po-
tential new members should understand that
the cost is considerable.
There are 63 Greek chapters at UF, accord-
ing to the 2010 Guide to Florida Greeks on
the Sorority and Fraternity Affairs website.
Thirty-nine of the chapters have houses.
Greek chapters participate in a number
of community events every year, includ-
ing Gator Growl and Homecoming, Greek


Week, Dance Marathon, the National Pan-
Hellenic Council Stepshow and the Multi-
cultural Greek Council Field Day.Together,
the Greek councils raise hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars for charity every year, ac-
cording to the Guide to the Greeks.
The mentality that fraternities and sorori-
ties are all about boozing and partying all the
time is a false one, Causseaux said.
"These are values-based organizations,"
he said. "People are looking to better them-
selves."
The UF Greek community is dedicated to


scholarship, leadership, service and commu-
nity, he said.
Joining a Greek chapter helps students
become more actively involved in the cam-
pus community, he said.
Fraternities and sororities are subject to
rules and regulations just like every other
student organization on campus, he said.
One set of rules, for example, deals especial-
ly with hazing.
The UF anti-hazing policy is comparable
to those of other universities, he said.
Requiring pledges to "ingest vile sub-

stances," "commit sex acts" or "sacrifice
or injure animals," for instance, are not al-
lowed, according to the Dean of Students Of-
fice website.
UF policy mandates that the students in
each Greek chapter maintain a cumulative
GPA of 2.85, but some chapters have even
higher standards for their members.
Each chapter is either required to perform
two service projects and one philanthropy,
or chapters can opt to accomplish four ser-
vice projects each semester.
Anyone who rushes a chapter expecting
to party all the time is in for a rude awaken-
ing, Causseaux said.
"There's much more expected of you than
just coming out to party," he said.
A lot of people scoff at the idea of joining
a fraternity or sorority because they get the
wrong idea from the media, he said.
But they are not all about wild parties,
one-night stands and secret initiation rites.
"It's fun to make fun of, but what you see
on TV and in the movies is not accurate," he
said.
Joining a fraternity or a sorority can pro-
vide a student with a number of opportuni-
ties, he said.
A Greek chapter provides networking op-
portunities, the chance to meet new people
outside of the residence halls, leadership
experience and an atmosphere of fellowship
that many people cherish after college.
"I believe in fraternities and sororities and
I believe they can help students become bet-
ter students," Causseaux said.

cies or recruitment dates, visit the Sorority

Renovated SW Rec highlights UF recreation offerings


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Writer

After one year and $16.3 million worth of
construction and renovation, the Southwest
Recreation Center is scheduled to reopen on
Wednesday.
The center, which has been under construc-
tion since Aug. 25, is now 40,000 square feet
larger than it was. Much of the preexisting
space was also renovated, according to the UF
RecSports website.


The project did not go over budget, and it
met its planned opening date, according to Da-
vid Bowles, director of RecSports.
On Aug. 24, RecSports is hosting the 2010
RecSports Extravaganza, which will exhibit
UF's many sports clubs, the massage therapy
program, group lessons and what's new at
Southwest Rec.
The renovations added 15,000 square feet for
cardio equipment, a .9-mile track, a new activ-
ity room to expand the group fitness program,
a training center and a social lounge, Bowles


UF's Southwest Recreation Center underwent an expansion over the last year.


said.
The center also renovated the locker rooms
and added an office complex to make it easier
for students to find all the organization's ser-
vices.
The added training center will provide
space for fitness assessment, personal training,
massage therapy and athletic training, while
the social lounge will have big-screen TVs and
couches. Its purpose, Bowles said, is to provide
an area for students to "kick back and relax."
The renovations were paid for with a fund
created by a $2.44-per-credit fee on students.
The fund is used to maintain, renovate and ex-
pand RecSports facilities, the Reitz Union, the
O'Connell Center and the Student Health Care
Center.
During the week, the center opens at 7 a.m.
and stays open until 1 a.m. On Gator Nights,
which start every Friday night and last until
early Saturday morning, it stays open until 2
a.m., according to the RecSports website.
On the weekends, the center is open from 10
a.m. to 10 p.m.
Southwest Recreation Center and the Stu-
dent Recreation and Fitness Center offer group
classes. The schedules for the classes can be
viewed online at recsports.ufl.edu.
UF also owns Lake Wauburg, a recreation-
al lake about eight and a half miles south of
campus where students can check out canoes,
mountain bikes, discs, kayaks and paddle boats
with a Gator 1 Card. Certification is needed to
check out sailboats, jet skis and wakeboards.
Smaller on-campus athletic facilities include
the Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex,
located beside Broward Hall, and the Student
Recreation and Fitness Center, located on the
east side of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Aside
from personal training, most services offered
at RecSports facilities are free to students with
Gator 1 Cards.

No car, no problem: alternative transportation plentifu


By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Writer

You're stuck on campus late at night.
You've got no car and no ride home. You're
armed with only your Gator 1 Card and your
cell phone.
Fortunately, you've got some options.
For UF students who lack transportation, or
are too inebriated to use their own, Gainesville
offers several ways to get around.
RTS, Gainesville's bus system, has three
special routes, called Later Gator routes, that
run from 8:30 p.m. until about 3 a.m.
Later Gator began as a partnership between
UF and RTS to help reduce the number of stu-
dents drinking and driving, according to Chip
Skinner, marketing supervisor for RTS.
"Instead of driving, they can get on the bus
and they don't have to worry," he said. "They
can get home safely. It is by far the safest mode
of transportation if they are going to be going
downtown."
The rates are the same as they are during
normal hours, meaning that rides are free for
those who flash their Gator 1 cards.
The three routes, A, B and C, run from the
Rosa Parks Downtown Station to UF campus,
southwest Gainesville and the Oaks Mall, re-
spectively.
The routes are designed to hit most major
student apartment complexes in Gainesville.
Route A will not run Monday or Tuesday
nights, however. Skinner said that the number
of people who used the route was too low to
justify keeping it open on those two nights.
If the thought of riding a public bus isn't
your cup of tea, there is another free service
that is coming to Gainesville around Aug. 15.
GOTCHA, which stands for "Green Oper-
ated Transit Carrying Humanity Around," is
the newest player in the public transportation
arena.
The GOTCHA cars, which are custom-built
electric vehicles, will essentially serve as free
taxis for people in Gainesville from 7:30 a.m.
to noon., and then pick back up in the evening
until 3 a.m., though GOTCHA president, Sean
Flood, says the hours are subject to change de-
pending on demand.


In order to get a GOTCHA car, you can ei-
ther call its dispatch center or hail one down
like a taxi.
The cars are paid for by advertisements,
and the drivers work on tips.
The six-seat cars are also outfitted with
iPod docks and flat-screen TVs to keep its pas-
sengers entertained along the ride.
"I hope they'll wonder how they got
around before we were there," Flood said.
Another option for students on campus is
SNAP, the UF Police Department's escort ser-
vice.
SNAP stands for Student Nighttime Aux-
iliary Patrol.
If a student calls 352-392-SNAP between
the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 3 a.m., sh or she can
be picked up and dropped off just about any-
where they need to go on campus.
"It's a great alternative to walking alone at
night," said Officer Pablo DeJesus, the SNAP
coordinator.


SNAP escorts cannot take anyone to non-
university-owned property, he said. The rea-
son for this is so UPD can better respond to
any situations that may arise.
Though it is a UPD service, it is almost en-
tirely student-run.
DeJesus is the only non-student employee
of SNAP, and the project is funded in-part by
Student Government.
DeJesus advised those who are too drunk
to drive and find themselves in search of trans-
portation to ride the bus, call a taxi or a desig-
nated driver instead of calling SNAP.
He said the service's primary objective is
not to provide transport for intoxicated stu-
dents because they may disturb others in the
van.
The driver of the van has the choice to ei-
ther take or leave drunk passengers and could
possibly call the police if they feel it would be
necessary.
"SNAP's primary goal is safety first and


Students board an RTS bus at The Hub on the UF campus. The Hub, located on Sta-
dium Road, is one of the main bus stops on campus.


foremost," he said.
For those who don't have cars but may
need one in certain circumstances, the Zipcar
program may be helpful.
Zipcar is a third-party company that rents
cars to students either by the hour or by the
day. These rental cars also have their own
reserved parking spaces in campus parking
lots.
Before you can rent from Zipcar, you must
apply for membership. Zipcar membership
applicants must be at least 18 years old and
have a good driving record to be approved.
Ron Fuller, assistant director of UF's Trans-
portation and Parking Services, said that they
can be very strict about "moving violations,"
or speeding and red-light running.
"Not just anyone can rent," he said. "You
have to have a really good driving history."
Zipcar's rates are $8 an hour and $66 per
day on weekdays, and $9 an hour and $72 per
day on weekends.

Students have options when buying books


By KAT BEIN
Alligator Writer
Textbooks.
They're expensive, and buy-
ing them can be a budget-busting,
heartbreaking experience. But luck-
ily, students in Gainesville have
lots of options for getting the books


they need for class.
The most obvious choice, and
the most convenient for those liv-
ing near the university, is to take
advantage of the on-campus UF
Bookstore, located in the Reitz
Union.
Off campus, there are plenty of
otherbookstores tobrowse through.
Some of the major stores include


Thomas Plevik/Alligator Staff
Textbooks line the shelves behind the counter at the Florida Book-
store on West University Avenue.


Orange and Blue Textbooks (OBT),
with two locations near campus,
and the Florida Bookstore, with
three locations around town - two
on West University Avenue and
one on Southwest 34th Street.
The major bookstores in town,
including the UF Bookstore, recent-
ly started textbook rental programs
that allow students who don't want
to permanently keep their books to
save money. Books aren't usually
due until the last day of exams or
the day following, depending on
store policy.
Matt Stevens, floor manager for
OBT, said renting is a good option
for students because, at his loca-
tion, books are rented for half the
price of new books.
"It works kind of like a library
card does," he said.
Stevens said minimal highlight-
ing and writing is allowed in texts.
However, if a book is returned
with too much damage, stu-
dents will be charged the
remaining 50 percent of the
book cost. He said rentals

class texts are offered.
Buybacks for the major
stores are open year-round, al-
though students shouldn't expect
all their books to be bought or to
receive even half of the original
price.


Some students choose to buy
non-textbooks, like required litera-
ture or history books, at local stores
like Book Lover's Vegetarian Caf6
on Northwest 13th Street. Others
use national chains like Barnes and
Noble.
And, of course, a growing trend
among students is simply to forgo
textbook stores and buy books
online. There are plenty of on-
line options, too, such as amazon.
com, craigslist.com, ebay.com and
gainesville4sale.com.
Ana Silva, a 21-year-old anthro-
pology major, said she buys most,
if not all, of her textbooks online us-
ing a website called bigwords.com.
She said it acts like a search engine
to find customers the best deals
from many different online stores.
Silva said she thinks buying
online is definitely the most afford-
able option for students.
"The advantage is definitely the
price," she said.
"You can find some textbooks,
I'm not even kidding, for $5 ... and
the quality is pretty much the same
as buying used."
She said the only disadvantage
is waiting for the texts to arrive,
especially if you wait until the end
of the drop/add period to order
them.
Silva said she keeps some of
her books, but the ones she doesn't
want she either sells to local stores
or uses bigwords.com to find the
highest bidder.
Silva also added that textbooks
can also be rented online.

Bad high-school habits can make transition harder


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Writer

Freshmen often face difficulties when
transitioning from high school to college.
According to Martin Simpson, director
of the Reading and Writing Center at UF,
the biggest problem is usually procrastina-
tion.
It can be an "academic killer," he said.
The problem stems from the simple fact
that college is harder than high school, he
said. Students may have been able to get
by with procrastinating in high school, so
they don't think they need to fix the prob-
lem.
"What used to work doesn't work any-
more," he said. "Writing the paper the
night before it's due-maybe you got away
with that in high school, but not here."
Students need daily checklists, and they
need to stay on top of their homework to
be successful, Simpson said.
Part of the problem is the structural dif-
ference between high school and college.
Most public high schools have students in
school for more than six hours every day,
amounting to more than 30 hours a week
of instruction.


In college, full-time students might have
15 hours of lectures each week for 15 credit
hours. They are expected to study 30 hours
a week outside class, Simpson said.
Channing Mims, who graduated Aug.
8 with a degree in family, youth and com-
munity sciences, said she liked the added
freedom that came with coming to college.
In high school, it's like "having a teacher
talk at you," which is ineffective, she said.
"In college, you kind of work at your own
pace. You can dabble in a lot of subjects."
Freshman, first-semester transfers and
first-year graduate students
Student make up about 80 percent of
Life the people who use the Read-
ing and Writing Center's tu-
toring services, Simpson said.
"In college, you can go all semester long
without attending class," he said. "There
isn't going to be a truancy cop out there."
Students might not realize they're in
academic trouble until after their first few
exams and it might take getting a "James
Bond 007-type GPA" for students to realize
they're in trouble, he said.
"If you have a really lousy first semes-
ter, it takes a few semesters to get back to


where you want to be," he said.
Note-taking is also a big challenge for
freshmen, he said.
In high school, students can usually get
by with weak note-taking skills. But in col-
lege, it's harder to do well without good
notes.
The Reading and Writing Center's web-
site has videos with advice for note-taking,
reading speed, memory, time management
and test-taking.
Students need to set up external moti-
vations, he said. Sometimes, scheduling
weekly meetings to work on study skills
can be enough. The Teaching Center lets
students sign up for weekly tutoring ses-
sions that last 50 minutes.
"We can give you external support when
you need it," Simpson said. "Some people
can pull it off with internal reinforcement
of shame, guilt or wanting that grade."
The most important thing is that stu-
dents need to learn from their problems as
early as possible, he said.
"It's one of those old sayings, you only
learn through pain. The sooner you deal
with the problem, the less serious it'll be,"
he said.

Gainesville area offers plenty of ways to enjoy nature


* SPRINGS, RIVERS, LAKES
AND STATE PARKS ARE ALL
WITHIN DRIVING DISTANCE.

By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Writer

In the fall, Gainesville is a hus-
tling, bustling place.
Cars line the urbane streets of
University Avenue. Neon lights
shine through the night in the down-
town district.
But surrounding the university
and semi-metropolitan areas of the
city is some of the most beautiful
natural scenery in north Florida.
One nearby place to go if you're
in search of nature is Devil's Mill-
hopper Geological State Park, which
is home to a 120-foot deep sinkhole
and small rain forest, according to
the Florida State Parks website.
Visitors can travel down into the
sinkhole using the park's boardwalk
system.
Going back up the plethora of
wooden steps from the bottom is
also a way to work out.
"People that are going to climb
mountains go train there," said Ra-
chel Ahrens, a 19-year-old student
at Santa Fe College. "I wanted to die
after running all the stairs."
One of Gainesville's main natu-
ral attractions is Paynes Prairie Pre-
serve State Park. The park spans
about 21,000 acres and is a National
Natural Landmark, according to the
Florida State Parks website.
It is home to an abundance of
wildlife, including bald eagles,
horses, hawks, sandhill cranes, al-
ligators, snakes, bison, otters, deer


and bobcats.
In the prairie, students can hike
the La Chua Trail or do some horse-
back riding down the Chacala Trail.
Camping is also an option.
On the south side of Paynes Prai-
rie is Lake Wauburg, a recreational
area where students can canoe and
fish for bass, bream and speckled
perch.
Students can bring other boats
onto the water for water skiing,


wake boarding and sailing. How-
ever, gas-powered motors are not
allowed on the lake.
At the lake, there is also a 55-foot
rock-climbing wall with 19 different
routes for beginner and advanced
climbers, according to the Depart-
ment of Recreational Sports website.
Entrance to the lake is free with a
Gator 1 Card. The park is closed
Monday.
Another lake that is closer to


campus has become a natural attrac-
tion as well.
Lake Alice has become a popular
place for students to visit, as the lake
and surrounding area is home to al-
ligators, turtles, wading birds and
bats. The lake is also surrounded by
a number of nature trails.
If you're in search of water and
are able to travel a bit, the towns
surrounding Gainesville also have
some worthwhile places to visit.


Horses roam Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park on Aug. 10, 2010. Paynes Prairie is one of the
natural attractions residents can enjoy in and around Gainesville.


One place that has proven to be
quite popular for students is the
Ichetucknee River north of High
Springs.
The main attraction at the river is
tubing.
Depending on which entrance
you choose to start from, you can
drift along the river for three-and-
a-half hours, an hour and a half or
45 minutes, according to Ichetuck-
neeriver.com.
Wildlife is also visible while rid-
ing along the river, which remains
a constant 72 degrees year-round.
White-tailed deer, raccoons, wild
turkeys, wood ducks and great blue
herons are frequent visitors to the
river's banks.
Also in the High Springs area are
the things the town is named for -
the springs.
Most students say that Gin-
nie Springs, Poe Springs and Blue
Springs as the most popular.
At Ginnie Springs, you can snor-
kel and swim. If you've got the wal-
let for it, scuba diving is an option.
"The springs are a very chill
place," said Lindsey Buz, a student
at Santa Fe College. "It's a very re-
laxing place where you can spend
quality time with your friends. It's a
great place to go if you want to go
camping or fishing or barbecuing."
Camping is also permitted, and
party people will be thrilled to know
alcohol is permitted, though not
without limitations. No glass bottles
are allowed, and you must be given
written approval from the park in
order to bring a keg with you on
your trip.
The nearby Santa Fe River also
has tubing, kayaking and canoeing.

ON CAMPUS

Parking induces migraines for student commuters

By ALEXANDER KLAUSN ER there are only 271 available spaces in double parking placed on his wind-
Alligator Writer the garage, shield. Parking Decal Prices


When seasoned UF students
think of parking on campus, words
like "nightmare," "horrendous"
and "atrocious" cascade out of their
mouths, alongside other words that
cannot be printed here.
With nearly 50,000 students,
17,000 faculty and staff and 24,000
parking spaces, it's easy to see why
parking is such a struggle.
In an effort to control the chaos,
UF has set up a strictly enforced
parking policy involving color-cod-
ed decals and fines.
"We've got to regulate it, or it's a
mad house," said Ron Fuller, assis-
tant director of Parking and Trans-
portation at UF.
Though some of the most com-
monly seen and desired parking lots
require orange decals, students may
be disappointed to find that those
decals are only available to faculty.
Instead, students living on cam-
pus can buy red decals, students liv-
ing off campus can buy Park & Ride
decals, students living in family
housing villages can park in brown
lots and disabled students can park
in any lot on campus.
All of these decals cost $67 a se-
mester.
Students who want to park their
scooters and motorcycles in des-
ignated lots on campus can buy a
cheaper decal for $48 a semester.
Some students without decals
choose to park in the UF Bookstore
and Visitor Welcome Center park-
ing garage near the Reitz Union.
There, the spaces are divided
up into three categories. There are
45-minute parking spaces, 2-hour
spaces, and all-day spaces. They cost
$1, $3 and $5, respectively.
The only problem with this is that


Students who live off campus
in areas that have "Neighborhood
Parking Decal Required" signs are
able to buy neighborhood decals
from the city, as opposed to the uni-
versity. Sept. 11 is the deadline to
buy neighborhood decals.
"Everyone has to have a decal or
permit to park on campus," Fuller
said. "There just isn't any free park-
ing anymore."
Those who break the rules and
park without paying often end up
paying more in fines than if they had
purchased the appropriate decals in
the first place.

"I can guarantee you
a parking space every
single day, but you know
where it is? Not where
you want to be."
Ron Fuller
assistant director of Parking and
Transportation at UF

The fines range anywhere from
the relatively inexpensive, like the
$15 for overstaying your welcome
at a metered space, to the colossally
expensive $1,200-plus you would
pay for being caught using a stolen
gated-lot decal.
UF pharmacy student Andy
Hendrickson has his share of horror
stories.
"I've given UF so much of my
money because of parking tickets,"
he said. "I've pretty much bought an
entire semester's worth of classes in
tickets."
Hendrickson said he once parked
his car with his tires sitting on the
white line. He found a $30 ticket for


In another incident, he was tick-
eted for backing into a space instead
of parking facing forward, which
cost him the same amount.
In total, he said he has been tick-
eted at least 12 times.
In the event that you do receive
a parking ticket, UF has a system
where tickets can be paid online
through your account with the uni-
versity.
Also, if you're feeling a bit cheat-
ed on a particular ticket, UF also has
set up a system where students can
appeal tickets online.
"Parking is not easy on campus,"
Fuller said. "It's not easy for [park-
ing staff]. Most of the time I just ride
my bike."
The university has encouraged
that students don't bring their cars
to school in an attempt to lighten the
parking load on campus.
Your Gator 1 Card, for instance,
will allow you to get free rides on
RTS buses around Gainesville.
To promote the use of bikes on
campus, UF student government
pays for a free bike repair service
station next to the Reitz Union.
There is good news for those
worried that they'll never be able to
get a spot on campus, though.
All parking restrictions are gen-
erally lifted on campus at 4:30 p.m.
Some lots lift parking at other times,
such as the lot across from Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium, which lifts its re-
strictions at 3:30, and the lot next to
Criser Hall, which opens up at 5:30.
Before then, however, getting a
decent parking space is migraine-
inducing.
"I can guarantee you a parking
space every single day," Fuller said.
"But you know where it is? Not
where you want to be."

Editor's Note: This is just a sample
of the many communities of faith
around Gainesville.


B&/4TIST COLLEGIATE MINISTRIES - is a group devoted
to helping "the collegiate become fully mature followers of Jesus." It is the
campus ministry of the Florida Baptist Convention. The group is not a club,
and there are no membership fees that need to be paid. Instead, people
who want to be involved can just show up to various events. The group's
weekly gathering is called Gator, and it features live worship music and
teachings from local pastors. It takes place every Tuesday at 8 p.m. Those
interested in the ministries can learn more about it at ufbcm.org.


R EFOPJME`D N UNIVERSITY FELLOWSHIP -is a Presbyte-
rian student group that meets on campus. The mission of the group, accord-
ing to Charles "Buddy" Valenti, is to introduce new students to the teach-
ings of Christ and also to strengthen Christians who are already believers.
The group has a weekly large-group meeting at the MSB Auditorium every
Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., which is a "time of singing and prayer," Valenti said.
The pastor, Steve Lammers, also gives a message at the meetings each
week. After the message there is time for fellowship where people can meet
and greet one another. The group also has small Bible-study groups. To find
out more about RUF, Valenti urges students to join the Facebook group, RUF
at UF, or go to rufgators.com.

"Song of God." Aside from the lunches, both the Krishna House and the Bhakti Yoga Student Associa-
tion, an on-campus Hare Krishna organization, will put together monthly meditation workshops and raw
food-cooking classes. However, it is yet to be determined where these will be held, according to Sagar
Kumar, the Bhakti Yoga president. To get involved or find out more, e-mail bhaktiyoga.uf@gmail.com

ELECTIONS

Candidates, student groups gear up for primaries


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Writer

Florida residents will be voting in
statewide primaries Aug. 24. The gen-
eral elections are Nov. 2.
While the UF College Democrats or-
ganization does not endorse candidates
for the primary elections, club presi-
dent Kristin Klein said she encourages
everyone to vote.
"Voting is one of the easiest direct
forms of political action," she said.
Klein, an economics and political sci-
ence senior, said the UF College Demo-
crats will have a voter registration drive
this semester.
The deadline for Floridians to reg-
ister to vote for the primary election
passed on July 26, but the deadline for
the general election is Oct. 4.
Both Klein and Carly Wilson, presi-
dent of the UF College Republicans,
said it's important for freshmen to reg-
ister in Gainesville.
Klein added that it's not too late for
students to change their residence for
voter registration. Students can change
their residence to Gainesville up to the


day they vote, she said.
On Aug. 8, Kendrick Meek, one of
four candidates running for the Demo-
cratic nomination for Florida's U.S. Sen-
ate race, visited Gainesville in an effort
to raise support.
During his stop at the Alachua


Meek


County Education As-
sociation, Meek talked
about promoting busi-
ness in Florida, uni-
versal health care, en-
vironmentally friendly
legislation and taking
care of servicemen
and women who suf-
fer from post-traumat-


ic stress disorder.
He called his primary battle with Jeff
Greene, a businessman who moved to
Florida two years ago, a "dress rehears-
al" for the general election.
"There are political battles that I've
read about and wished I was a part of,
and I'm blessed and honored to be a
part of this one," Meek said.
In an interview, Meek said he would
try to earmark research dollars for Flor-
ida universities because it helps bring


jobs and create economic opportuni-
ties.
Meek views the general election,
which will likely be against Florida
Gov. Charlie Crist and former Speaker
of the Florida House of Representatives
Marco Rubio, as a race against two Re-
publicans, even though Crist registered
as an independent.
Of the main candidates for U.S. Sen-
ate and Florida governor, two are UF
alumni.
Rubio attended Santa Fe Community
College and graduated from UF in 1993.
Gubernatorial hopeful Bill McCollum
earned both his bachelor's and law de-
grees at UF.
The College Democrats' first meet-
ing of the school year will be Sept. 2 at
7 p.m. at Pugh Hall, Room 120, Klein
said. The College Republicans' first
meeting will be Aug. 26 at 6 p.m. in the
Reitz Union, Room 374.
The Students for the Preservation
of Freedom, a libertarian group not as-
sociated with either party, has not an-
nounced the time of its first fall meet-
ing, according to the group's secretary,
William Tew.

Campus dining makes gaining Freshman 15 easy


* STUDENTS CAN BUY MEAL
PLANS OR PAY AS THEY EAT.

By KAT BEIN
Alligator Writer

Studying can take a lot out of a
student, and no one likes to work
on an empty stomach. Thank-
fully, there are plenty of dining
options for all palates on campus,
and lots of payment options, too.
On-campus eating is provided
by Gator Dining Services, which
oversees more than 40 locations,
including national brands like
Subway, Moe's Southwest Grill,
Pollo Tropical, Chick-fil-A and
many others.
The university's primary eat-
ing facility is the Reitz Union,
which houses 12 restaurants.
There are also two dining
centers on campus: the Fresh
Food Company at Broward Hall,
and Gator Corner Dining Cen-
ter, where students can enjoy a
changing menu of home-style
cooked meals and buffets.
Most dining options are closed
over breaks, except for a few
places at the Hub or Reitz Union.
Otherwise, hours of operation for
each restaurant can be found on-
line at gatordining.com.
Students may choose to buy
food conventionally, or, if they
plan to eat on campus often, they
can choose from various meal
plans, all of which work off the
magnetic strip of students' Gator
1 Cards, according to the web-
site.
Upon purchasing meal plans,
accounts are automatically acti-
vated and ready for use, accord-
ing to the website.
Students living on campus
may want to purchase an Open-
Access Meal Plan through the
university, which could save
them some money. Under the
plan, students can choose either
5-day or 7-day access, and don't


need to worry about counting
meals.
Gator Dining officials sug-
gest that off-campus students
purchase commuter meal plans,
which offer weekly roll-over
meal limits and discounted menu
prices.
Students also have the option
of using a Declining Balance Ac-
count, which is a pre-paid sys-
tem with no minimum balance or
starting fees. It is valid at all on-
campus restaurants.
Vegetarians and vegans are
in luck, too. UF's dining services
have been voted in the Top 10
Best Vegetarian-Friendly Colleg-
es in the U.S. by PETA.
Nina Zagvazdina, a graduate
student in geography, said she
became a vegetarian when she
first came to UF about three years
ago. She hasn't had any trouble
finding things to eat on campus.
"When I was a freshman I had
a meal plan," she
Local said. "Every day for
News lunch and dinner
there was something
there ... whether it was amazing
or not was another thing."
Zagvazdina said she usually
brings her food with her, but if
she buys food on campus, she
usually eats at Subway or Moe's,
which both offer vegetarian menu
options.
She also frequently eats
Krishna lunches, which have
been served daily since 1971 on
the Plaza of the Americas from
around 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The vegetarian meals are
served for a $4 donation, or
voucher cards can be purchased,
$30 for a 10-meal card and $20 for
a 6-meal card, according to the
Krishna website.
For more information about
meal plans and on-campus eat-
ery options, visit Gator Dining's
website or call their office at 352-
392-2491.

homeless hearts


Some homeless people are addicts, conformists, veterans, ex-convicts, family members, professionals, workers
who have lost their jobs and wandering souls. They say they will never walk the roads alone, that they will
always have one another. And they will always relate because in life anyone can have the same fate.



page 25


Dear Readers,
If you're new in town or just
returning from your summer re-
spite, I'd like to personally wel-
come you to our own version of
collegiate paradise. Even though
we're a relatively small town,
there are a ton of things to see
and do (and drink). In this issue,
you can find places to eat, get
coffee or party your ass off in
true Gainesville/Gator fashion.
We have bars and nightspots
on every corner. We have a ton
of bike shops and hookah spots
and restaurants too. I'm not go-
ing to dwell on it, but there are
also a significant number of the
downtrodden and destitute in
our town and it can't hurt to at
least be familiar with the issue.
Also, there are a wide array of
volunteering opportunities for
those of you who want to give
back to the community. Finally, I
know you're going to drink, but
at least take advantage of the
transportation options in town so
you don't get behind the wheel.
That's just stupid.

Tips to acclimate yourself properly by not pissing off the locals


Y p, it's that time of year again.
Time for the peace to end.
Time for the streets to crowd.
Time for the influx of out-of-towners
coming to steal our land, pillage our
town and take our women.
OK, maybe not. But there's still a
buttload of you coming for fall semes-
ter.
But before you get too comfy in this
town, remember that there were peo-
ple here before you. People who can't
stand some of the things you do. You
refer to us affectionately as Alachua
County Residents or ACRs.
Growing up in Gainesville and now
goingto school here, I've been on both
sides of the fence. I used to hate ev-
erything about the invading college
kids.
Hell, I wasn't even allowed to
drive south of Eighth Avenue on Fri-
day nights because my parents were
afraid I'd get plowed into by some
drunk sophomore on a moped.
Now that I'm older, I see it from a
different angle. Yes, I still think most
of you are dummies, and I realize I am,


too. But, at least I know how to be con-
siderate of my fellow Gainesvillian.
Now, don't get the idea that we
don't want you here. Some of you are
all right. And let's face it, you're the
ones who keep our businesses open.
The bars would be SOL without you.
But there are a few things you
could do to keep me from wanting to
hit every BMW with Miami-Dade tags
I see cruising down University Avenue.
Consider this your ACRs guide to
Gainesville:

1. This isn't Jersey, so don't drive
like it.
I realize that most of you comefrom
some larger city and you're used to
driving like major a-holes, but there's
no reason to show me your manicured
middle finger as you zoom past me for
going30 in a 30.
It's a small town and chances are
you're within three minutes of wher-
ever you're going. I know I'm sound-
ing very dad-like here, but this isn't a
race.
I should also add thatyou shouldn't


U park your stu-
pid little Vespa
knock-off that
your landlord
gave you in
a car-sized
parking spot.
Alex Orlando Not only is it
Columnist a surefire way
to be spotted
as someone
who's not from here, it makes us ACRs
want to get out of our trucks and kick
your scooter over. So, seriously, stop
it.

2. Explore the town. It's a lot cool-
er than whatever you have planned
this weekend.
You might not have noticed, butthis
place is friggin' sexy as far as wildlife
goes. So, instead of slamming down
Four Locos this weekend at a frat
party on your first weekend back, go
out and look at the stars over Paynes
Prairie, go to the springs or check out
the deer over at Devil's Millhopper.
There's tons of things to do here. And


chances are, this wildlife won't try to
give you a tour of the frat house that's
sure to end in an awkward, regrettable
scooter ride home the next morning

3. Don't call us ACRs.
Only we can call each other ACRs.

4. Don't be a nightcrawler.
I see this all the time. It's 2 a.m.,
the clubs just let out and you're all
running around like those Nerf-gun-
armed freshmen who play Humans
vs. Zombies, only you're belligerent
drunks. It's every weekend. Cop cars
flare their lights, kids scream for at-
tention and the sidewalks reek of beer
and puke. It's like a scene from "I Am
Legend."
This isn't whatever club scene you
have back home. You don't look cool
wearing your bright-colored clothes or
your sunglasses at night as you stag-
ger out of Grog House still fist pump-
ing. You just look lost. So keep your
Miami out of my Gainesville.
For reference, we ACRs don't do
that. We're at a friend's house, wear-


ing jorts, listening to country music
and drinking cheap beer, just like you
think we are.

5. Befriend an ACR
You probablythink none of us actu-
ally go to college, but I'm living proof
that we do. We are a peaceful people
who only want to be left alone and to
be less inconvenienced by people who
act like hooligans.
But, if you come across a creature
from here, be nice. If we think you're
cool enough, we might show you some
neat things about the town, show you
our favorite swimming hole on the riv-
er or hand you a glass of sweet tea.
I know I've been a royal jerk in this
column, but some of you had it com-
ing. So, take these things into account
when you're out and about this school
year.
You'll probably run across us dur-
ing our favorite activity: goin' to Gaterrr
fuhtball games! And you can guaran-
damn-tee we'll be there. So if you see
one of us, speak slow and act like you
understand. We'll get along just fine.

New students, meet your new neighbors - the homeless


By KAT BEIN
avenue writer

Living in Gainesville, there's
something you're going to encoun-
ter on the streets that you should be
ready for.
No, I'm not talking about the
ravenous, beer-bloated Gator fans
or drunken sorority girls crying on
the side of the road (although you'll
meet those, too). I'm talking about
the overwhelming and aggressively
sponging homeless population.
When I moved here in 2008, I
was surprised by the sheer amount
of them, as well as the ease with
which they approach passersby.
Although Gainesville was recently
named one of the meanest cities by
the National Coalition for the Home-
less, it doesn't stop street dwellers
of all kinds from making it one of
their favorite stomping grounds.
We've got all kinds here: young,
traveling crust kids who choose to
be homeless; slightly demented but
harmless crazies who can't stop


running; and of course, crackheads
without pants. And they've all got a
story. Maybe they just got out of the
hospital and need money for medi-
cine, maybe their family was killed
by ninjas and they need money
for karate lessons, or maybe their
grandmammaa always told me just
ask for 75 cents."
It's easy at first to think you
should give a little something- after
all, do unto others. But after a while,
it becomes obvious that there are
just too many to have sympathy for
them all, and sometimes you have to
think back to those DARE days as a
kid and just say no.
Of course, howyou chooseto dole
out your funds is a personal choice.
Many feel their money should be
earned, either by having their car
cleaned or listening to a pan han-
dler play guitar. For some people, it's
enough if they're enticed to laugh.
Teaamont Hadez Cuningham
goes for humor. He's gained quite
a reputation in town and online for


his "ninjas killed my family" sign.
He said he's been using that line for
the past 15 years and it definitely
helps.
"I get enough to get weed, the
herbal cigarettes I smoke and some
food," Cuningham said. "I don't
drink and luckily I don't pay child
support."
Cuningham said he just came
back to Gainesville a couple weeks
ago, this being his fourth visit.
"It used to be a lot cooler," he
said. "When I first came here, drug
dealers were everywhere and they
didn't mind meeting new people."
Still, Cuningham said he loves be-
ing here and thinks Gainesville has
a great atmosphere for people like
him. He doesn't think people giving
handouts should care who they give
it to or what they use it for.
"Don't assume," he said. "Even
if you don't think you're helping, you
are. Maybe they [spend your money
on drinks] because they have a lot of
things they'd like to forget."


Nury Dominguez, a 20-year-old
Santa Fe business major, disagrees.
She said she's met Cuningham be-
fore, and she didn't think his act
was very funny. In fact, she's over
the homeless.
"I feel like especially they come
to me and have conversations with
me," she said. "I just don't have any-
thing for them. I used to be nice, but
it got to the point that it was really
annoying."
She's not alone.
"Most of them are oxygen
thieves, they just sucking up some-
one else's air," said Eugene Primus,
who doesn't consider himself home-
less because he often stays with a
friend.
Primus is often found sleeping in
front of American Apparel, his "spe-
cial spot," and is familiar to many
club-goers who have seen the man
cleaning up after their mess.
Eugene has been in Gainesville
for 22 years and helps set up and
clean various clubs around down-


town each night of the week. He
cleans cars by day, because he said
he was raised to believe you should
work for what you get.
"A lot of people in this town have
no get up and go, they just want
handouts," he said. "I work for my
s--- so people can't say I owe them
nothing."
Max Tipping, the executive direc-
tor of the Alachua County Coalition
for the Homeless and Hungry, said if
you want to help, handouts are OK,
but if you want to make a bigger do-
nation, it's betterto come to him and
his organization, and it's needed.
He said the last count in Janu-
ary put the homeless population at
1,292 people, 242 of those are chil-
dren under 18.
He said many of the groups and
organizations they work with desper-
ately need volunteers.
Anyone interested in making a
donation or volunteering his or he
time is asked to contact Tipping di-
rectly, at 352-378-0460.

Construction on Main Street bad for Backstage business


By DANIEL ELSESSER
avenue contributing writer


The Backstage Lounge just had its
biggest crowd in months. Almost 60
people attended the rock lounge and
bar to celebrate its fourth year under
the current ownership Sunday.
The crowd of 60 was once expect-
ed for a slow Tuesday or Wednesday,
but since the construction on South
Main Street decreased drive-by traf-
fic, the Backstage Lounge and other
businesses on South Main Street have
been suffering
In the barroom adjacent to the rock
lounge area, five people sattalkingqui-
etly, including the owner of the Back-
stage Lounge, Rick Tingle. Despite his
imposing 6-foot-7-inch build, Tingle is
as cordial and engaging as the female
bartender, Marty Lewis, who happens
to be Tingle's "better half."
Tingle said he has worked at the
Lounge in some capacity since it was
called Eddie C's. After he bought itfour
years ago, he changed the name to
the Backstage Lounge to give patrons
a more comfortable feel, but promised
the man who sold him the place that
he would continue to house live music
for the next 20 years.
Tingle said that while live bands
will occasionally draw a crowd for the
Backstage Lounge, it has suffered
along with many other businesses on
South Main Street since construction
from the 900 block on North Main
Street to Depot Avenue began in Janu-
ary.
Tingle said that traffic has dropped
off significantly after the construction


work that is replacing sewer pipes
and removing contaminated soil cre-
ated detours from UniversityAvenue to
South Main Street.
Tingle said the lack of drive-by cus-
tomers has hurtthe Backstage Lounge
financially.
"I'm paying rent for property that's
supposed to have 3,000 cars drive by
it every day," Tingle said. "I'm getting
about four."
Tingle said the day before the
Backstage Lounge received a legal
maximum capacity requirement, Trav-
is Meeks of the band Days of the New
performed, and 650 people jammed
into the Lounge to watch him.
Lewis stood still and held her arms
tightly to her sides to demonstrate the
freedom of movement that each per-
son had that night.
The next day, the Backstage
Lounge was given a maximum capac-
ity of 300 people.
At a meeting with city officials in
April, Tingle proposed that to compen-
sate for lost business, the city should
give the Backstage Lounge up to four
outdoor permits per month, which
would normally cost $250 each.
Tingle said he has heard no re-
sponse from the city or the Florida De-
partment of Transportation.
"If they were serious they could fin-
ish this in six or seven months," Tingle
said. "It's not like they're not trying I
just feel like they don't care."
Gina Hawkins, the spokeswoman
for the City of Gainesville Public Works
Department, said working two blocks
at a time is more efficient than work-
ingon the entire area at once because


Thomas Plevik/Alligator Staff
Since construction began on the intersection of South Main Street and Depot Road, businesses south of Depot
Road, such as Backstage Lounge, have been suffering.


doing the whole project at once would
mean longer detours and would block
more traffic crossing Main Street.
"In order to manage the flow of traf-
fic to businesses on Main Street, we
have found this design to be our most
efficient option," Hawkins said.


Shortly after 1 a.m., Tingle and
Lewis left the bar for their home. At
home, they have a tomato garden that
they made almost every meal from
during an eight-month period when
profits from the Lounge were lower
than normal.


"I'm living week to week," Tingle
said. "In two weeks I might be here,
but if I can't pay the $2,300 for my
electric bill, I might have to close my
doors. That's when you'll see me out
there chained to the construction
equipment."

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 27


Fall season brings new hope for tried and true franchises


Madden, Metroid and Halo to be released soon


By JOSH ISOM
avenue contributing writer

Zombies, Spartans and 22 men getting sweaty together:
It must be the beginning of gaming season.
As if you needed more reasons to shirk off homework this
semester, here are the heavy hitting games coming out in
August and September:

"Madden NFL 2011" - Aug. 10 (PS3, Xbox
360, Wii, PS2, PSP, iPhone)
Let's face the facts: This game is going to sell millions of
copies. It's the only NFL-licensed football game in town, and
it's being released on nearly every system available.
The previous installment sold nearly two million copies
in its first month, according to the NPD's August 2009 re-
port. "Madden" brings in the money, and the series shows
no signs of stopping.
This year's installment in the annual franchise introduces
the GameFlow playcalling mechanic. Essentially, GameFlow
is an Al system that automatically handles both offensive
and defensive playcalling to streamline the experience, ac-
cording to IGN. Of course, the option to manually choose a
play is still included, but for those of us without a lick of play-
calling know-how, GameFlow sounds like a great way for a
wider audience to enjoy the game.

"Metroid: Other M" - Aug. 31 (Wii)
Besides jiggling breast physics - yes, you read that cor-
rectly - developer Team Ninja is well-known for their brutally
difficult, side-scrolling "Ninja Gaiden" series from the NES
era. Mixing together a well-known franchise like "Metroid"
with the 2D experience of Team Ninja sounds intriguing, and
when you throw in the first-person exploration elements of
the "Metroid Prime" games, "Metroid: Other M" sounds like
a recipe for instant success.
IGN did state some gripes with the game in their hands-
on article on August 5, most notably the game's stiff con-


trols and overeager auto-targeting; however, they did go on to
state that "even with some weird quirks the game felt like it
will be a really fun and engaging Metroid experience." Decide
for yourself when "Metroid: Other M" comes out August 31.

"Halo: Reach" - Sept. 14 (Xbox 360)
The culmination of over a decade spent in the "Halo" uni-
verse, "Halo: Reach" is Bungie's love letter to the series that
made the Xbox a household name, and the loyal fans who
supported them on the path to world domination.
"Halo: Reach" is the ultimate package deal: a cinematic,
four-player cooperative campaign experience; fine-tuned com-
petitive multiplayer arena; an increasingly difficult survival
mode; a full-fledged map editing toolset and a user-friendly
screenshot and video capturing and sharing system.
In an interview between Bungie and Xbox360 Achieve-
ments in February, Bungie stated that "Halo: Reach" sup-
ports up to 60 Al characters on screen - three times more
than "Halo 3" - which equates to more epic skirmishes be-
tween the player and the invading Covenant forces. With that
in mind, you shouldn't expect Bungie to send off their classic
series with anything less than a bang.

"Sid Meier's Civilization V" - Sept. 21 (PC)
Strategy games are to consoles as comedies are to the
TBS network: they often try, they often fail and even the suc-
cessful ones are only a success in that they don't completely
suck. Strategy games, however, are the PC's bread and but-
ter, and the turn-based "Sid Meier's Civilization" games are
some of the brightest gems in the genre.
"Civilization V" is all about empire building and resource
management. Like "Madden 2011," "Civilization V" aims to
streamline the playing experience. Accordingto Gamespy, to
lower the hurdle of micromanagement to newcomers, click-
able notifications about resources and research appear on
a screen that moves the camera directly to the issue, and
advisers appear to suggest further guidance about empire
building.


"Dead Rising 2" - Sept. 28 (PS3, Xbox 360,
PC)
Taking place five years after the events of "Dead Rising,"
"Dead Rising 2" follows protagonist Chuck Greene as he rips
through seething hordes of zombies in Fortune City, a me-
tropolis reminiscent of Las Vegas.
According to TeamXbox, the amount of zombies onscreen
has risen from 500 in "Dead Rising" to a ridiculous 7,000.
Now, imagine drivingthrough that mass of insatiable undead
beings with a motorcycle equipped with a chainsaw.
One of the biggest flaws of "Dead Rising" was its archaic
save system. The player had one save slot to use, a decision
that stifled player experimentation.
Equally as frustrating was how far apart the save stations
were.
According to Kotaku, "Dead Rising 2" will feature mul-
tiple save slots and will have more save stations to aid the
player.
And while that still falls short of an auto-save feature, it's
a step in the right direction.

"FIFA 11"- Sept. 28 (PS3, PC, Xbox 360, Wii,
PS2, PSP, DS and mobile)
While real-life soccer continually gets put on the back
burner in America, its video game counterpart gets plenty of
love in the states.
Accordingto The Washington Times, "North America is the
[No.] 2 market for the EA Sports FIFA game."
In an interview with Kotaku.com, Electronic Arts expects
the U.S. to be No. 1 when "FIFA 11" releases after Landon
Donovan's game-winning goal against Algeria.
Accordingto EA Sports' website, "FIFA 2011" implements
a new feature dubbed Personality+ that imbues an athlete's
real-life abilities and personality into their virtual avatar. The
skill-set of each player is evaluated on over 57 traits and 36
attributes.
This is both good and bad news for soccer purists: While
this feature might benefit those in control of Lionel Messi,
those using Robbie Findley might find themselves getting
consistently dispossessed. You've been warned.

Volunteer opportunities endless for all looking to help


By ERIN RAUCH
avenue writer

For those who aren't fans of week-
end benders, Gainesville has plenty
of ways to spend your time produc-
tively.
Regardless of your past volun-
teer experience, Alachua County has
something for you.

Environment:
Students with a green thumb can
volunteer with the Florida Organic
Growers, a local 501(c)(3) not-for-
profit corporation that supports and
promotes organic and sustainable
agriculture through education, policy,
certification services and outreach
programs.
They are currently looking for vol-
unteers to help with the Gainesville
Initiative for Tasty Gardens. Volun-
teers will help build free, raised-bed
vegetable gardens at low-income
residencies and community centers
in Alachua County.
For more information regarding
this program and other volunteer op-
portunities with FOG, call 352-377-
6345 or visit their website foginfo.
org/index.php

Medical:
Whether you want to get a head
start on your medical school ap-
plication or simply put a smile on a
patient's face, Shands at UF has a
list of volunteer opportunities avail-
able within most of its departments.
Its website, shands.org, provides
detailed information about all of the
departments seeking volunteers as
well as descriptions of responsibili-
ties, requirements and a schedule for
each position.
Departments seeking volunteers
range from radiologyto the children's


hospital. Details about the applica-
tion process can be found online,
or you can call volunteer services at
352-265-0360 for more information.

Museum:
The Florida Museum of Natural
History, located on the UF campus, is
holding a volunteer orientation Sept.
9 from 1 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Students
can sign-up online at flmnh.ufl.edu/
volunteers.
Students can help maintain the
Butterfly Rainforest, lead docent
tours or help curators with a variety of
collections at the museum. For more
information contact Julie Crosby,
volunteer coordinator, at 352-273-
2055 or volunteers@flmnh.ufl.edu.

Veterans:
Students interested in volunteer-
ing with veterans can sign up at the
Malcolm Randall VA Medical Cen-
ter located on 1601 SW Archer Rd.
Students must go to the Voluntary
Service Office in the E-wing of the
basement to fill out an application.
Once you have completed an appli-
cation, you will be notified about an
appointment to speak with the Chief
of Volunteer Services to place you
in a department. Information about
departments seeking help will be pro-
vided during your appointment. For
more information call 352-374-6068.

Ministry:
Whether you boast a toolbox that
would put Tim "The Toolman" Taylor
to shame or don't know the differ-
ence between a socket wrench and a
monkey wrench, you can help ensure
families in Alachua County have a
roof over their heads.
Alachua Habitat for Humanity is a
nonprofit Christian housing ministry


that provides families in need with af-
fordable, safe homes.
Jan LeDuc, volunteer coordinator,
said the ministry is currently refur-
bishing a home in conjunction with
the city. Volunteers are needed on
Thursday and Saturdays. Students
interested in signing up for this proj-
ect should contact Jimmy Souther-
land, construction director, at jsouth-
erland@alachuahabitat.org.
Volunteer opportunities are also
available at the thrift store, at the of-
fice and at other construction sites.
Students can contact LeDuc at jtl-
gator@cox.net or visit the ministry's
website at alachuahabitat.org for
more information.

Child Development:
The Boys and Girls Club of Alachua
County is a local organization focused
on the personal development of
young women and young men in the
community. Laura Javidi, director of
special events, said they are looking
for volunteers to help tutor children
and assist with their homework.
Students can also volunteer dur-
ing recreational hours and assist with
storytelling and arts and crafts. To ap-
ply, students must come to the office
located at 2700 NW 51st St. to pick
up an application.
A federal background check is
required in order to become a volun-
teer. A copy of your driver's license
and social security are required along
with fingerprints and a $30 fee. Javidi
said it usually takes up to 10 days to
process an application once it is com-
pleted and returned to the office.
Volunteers are needed Mondays
through Fridays from 2 p.m. to 7
p.m. For more information, visit my-
boysandgirlsclub.com.


Education:
If your 12 credit hours aren't
quelling your desire for education
then head over to any of the 42 Ala-
chua County Public Schools seeking
volunteers. Liz Stark, volunteer coor-
dinator, said Alachua County Public
Schools place about 5,000 students
in volunteer positions each year.
Representatives from Alachua
County Public Schools will be ta-
bling at Santa Fe College and UF


the first two weeks of school. For
detailed information about what
time and where they will be set up
visit sbac.edu or call 352-955-6760.

Looking for something else?
If the list above doesn't satisfy
your volunteer craving, the list of op-
portunities in Alachua County goes
on. Visit gainesvillevolunteer.com for
a detailed list of organizations seek-
ing volunteers.

Where to eat when



you get the munchies

By ERIN RAUCH and NorthwestSecond Street. Atthis
avenue writer corner vou will find the most exaui


The long list of local restaurants
in Gainesville may seem daunting at
first, but by the end of this brief tuto-
rial you'll be well on your way to find-
ingyour favorite nook in the midst of
the multitude of local eateries.
Now, I'm no food critic, but after
visiting a handful of restaurants in
Gainesville I can recommend a few
of the tastiest and most affordable
joints in town.

Mexican
Boca Fiesta's menu boasts a va-
riety of Mexican food and the best
margaritas in town. I have yet to test
out the latter's truth, but after eat-
ing my weight in their nachos, tacos
and guacamole (they let you mash it
yourself, so be prepared to flex those
extrinsic hand muscles), I have no
doubt they will deliver in that area
too.
Their chow isn't limited to what's
listed on the standard menu. Every
month they feature a unique meat.
This month they have "swordfish-
stick" tacos, with you guessed it,
swordfish.
Not weird enough for you? In Jan-
uary they featured peppers stuffed
with crispy meal worms.
As the brave soul that I am, I tried
it, and not only was it palatable, but
it was tasty.
For a menu and a detailed list of
events, visit their website, bocafies-
ta.com or call 352-336-8226. If my
blurb of praise has already convinced
you, then head downtown to the Sun
Center, 232 SE 1st St. I recommend
sitting outside, they have fresh pep-
pers and other edibles growing right
on the walls.

Pizza
Step back into the '70s and en-
joy a deep-dish pizza in the back of
an aquamarine VW Bus at Satchel's
Pizza, located at 1800 NE 23rd Ave.
If eating in a van isn't your style, you
can eat outside, inside or in a tree
house.
No matter where you sit, the pizza
is plentiful and delicious with enough
toppings to satisfy all of your taste
buds. They also have salads and cal-
zones that are rumored to turn you
into a fanatic after the first bite.
Once you've finished a quarter of
that pizza pie (trust me, you won't be
able to finish it in one sitting) order a
cannoli or five, they are baked fresh
in house. Take a walk to Lightnin'
Salvage behind the main restaurant
before you leave to splurge on that
bacon wallet you have been search-
ing for or on any of their unique trin-
kets.
The restaurant is cash-only, but
don't fret if you forget to bring some
dough, they have an ATM in house.
For more information on the menu
and restaurant hours visit their web-
site, satchelspizza.com or call 352-
335-7272.

Cuban
Flaco's Cuban Bakery is located
at the corner of University Avenue


site Cuban food in town.
They have arepas, empanadas,
Cuban sandwiches and a variety of
pastries. It all comes at a good price
and, frankly, the taste is undeniably
awesome.
I recommend the Cuban sand-
wich, not only for the savory taste but
for the portion size as well. They have
a menu available online at allmenus.
com or you can call 352-371-2000
for more information.

Sushi
We may be in the center of the
state, but we're not lacking in the
raw fish department.
Gainesville is home to a long list
of sushi restaurants, some featur-
ing sushi bowls while others offer
a tapas-style dining experience.
Dragonfly serves tapas-style, which
means you share your meal.
It'san intriguingconcept, butdon't
be surprised if you find yourself duel-
ing for that last piece of spicy tuna.
Dragonfly is located at 201 SE 2nd
Ave.
For more information on
their menu items and hours
visit their website, dragonflysu-
shi.com or call 352-371-3359.

BBQ
David's Real Pit BBQ features a
breakfast, lunch and dinner menu.
Whether you're craving a slab of
ribs, corn on the cob or a pulled-
pork sandwich, they have it all.
Employees don People Eating Tasty
Animals (PETA) shirts and serve you
with the best Southern hospitality.

An abundance of music venues


By MARISSA PRIETO
avenue writer

Gainesville is home to a very di-
verse group of students, and in that
particular spirit it also houses a di-
verse group of music venues to serve
your auditory needs.
Whether you're going to be
dancing at one of the many
clubs to your favorite DJs
while sipping on a gin and tonic orjam-
mingto indie music with PBR in hand,
there's a venue to fit your style.
On any weekend night, you
can stop in at 1982 to support
a fresh-off-the-block local band or fist-
pump the night away to the sounds
of booming house music at The
Vault. Here are some local favorites:

Tim and Terry's Music & More
After having a few beers at your
buddy's house party in the student
ghetto, stumble down to Tim and
Terry's Music & More, the two-story
purple house behind Target Copy on
University Avenue, for some live music
any night of the week.
(Editors note: Try to drink respon-
sibly, and don't drink and drive). This
bar/deli/convenience store/music
venue has everything a college stu-
dent could want.
Feeling creative? Show off your mu-
sical talent at open-mic night, which
usually takes up to four nights a week.
The front porch is also a great place
to mingle and meet new faces.
Everyone is welcome and there's
never a cover charge. Food is served
until midnight.
"It's definitely a place that you
don't have to worry about what
you wear," Sarah Plimmer, manager of
Tim & Terry's, said. "Come as you are."

Common Grounds
There's something different
happening downtown at Common
Grounds, 210 SW Second Ave., ev-


ery night. If there's no live show, they
promise to have happy hour all night
long($1 domestics and $2 imports.)
"We're a little bit of everything,"
said Jason Rockhill, co-owner of Com-
mon Grounds.
Big names like Gainesville-based
ska band Less Than Jake (coming
Sept. 23 and 24) and JJ Grey & Mo-
fro (coming Oct. 27) have graced the
stage, as well as popular local bands
like Michael Claytor and his Friends
and Paxico via Mexico.
What seems like a quaint, one-
room venue can pack up to 400 peo-
ple for a really popular band.
"We're the kind of place
that the 'next big thing'
plays at," Rockhill said.
Monday nights are karaoke. Fri-
days from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. are cook-
outs and happy hour
Local on The Porch, the
Locl outdoor sitting area
of Common Grounds.
For shows, the
venue is 18 and up with covers rang-
ing from $3 to $17, with an addi-
tional $2 cover for those under 21.
For nights with no shows, there is no
cover and it's 21 and up.

1982
Video games, beer and music.
1982 doesn't need much more of a
description to bring the crowd.
Close to campus, 1982,919W Uni-
versity Ave., is a great place to see lo-
cal bands play, enjoyfree video games
and hang out with friends.
Indie, hip-hop, reggae, ska and
punk bands draw an average crowd of
100 people four to five nights a week.
"We get a lot of brand-new bands
because we are open to booking
them," said Jennifer Vito, man-
ager of 1982. "It's really exciting
to see them two years later if they've
made it big"
The bar is open to a wide variety of
music, both local and underground.


Monday nights are video-game
night, which means $1 beer, no cover
and no bands.
Tuesday nights are stand-up com-
edy shows. Wednesday nights are in-
dustry night.
1982 is all ages every night. Cov-
er usually ranges between $5 and
$10 but depends on the the artist.
In addition to the live music ven-
ues in town, there are also a num-
ber of clubs where you can listen
to the latest house or dance music.

The Vault
The Vault, 238 W University Ave., is
one of Gainesville's newest and most
popular nightclubs open Thursdays,
Friday and Saturdays.
There is the occasional live music
performance, but every night Vault-
goers get to experience the state-of-
the-art lighting, sound and club envi-
ronment.
Summer B-ers were able to see DJ
Steve Aoki, mash-up artist Milkman
and Boston-based rapper Sam Adams
live at The Vault this July.
The club is 18 and up. Cover
depends on the artist performing.

The Venue
The Venue, 233 W University Ave.,
is one of Gainesville's main nightclubs
and is guaranteed to always have a
line out the door.
It's mainly a dance club, but it also
has live music on certain nights.
In recent months, country-music
star Corey Smith and rock band Mo-
tion City Soundtrack have passed
through to play a show at The
Venue. Bassnectar, a DJ from Califor-
nia, will be comingSept. 15.
Aside from these, Gainesville has
many more to offer.
All it takes is some looking around
and the courage to try a new place in
order to find your new favorite bar, and
potentially your new favorite band, in
town.

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 31


Get your buzz on the right way


By SHELBY WEBB
avenue writer


Alright, so you're kind of sick of
Starbucks. I don't blame you. Shelling
out almost $4 for a urine-sample-sized
coffee can put a damper on your caf-
feine rush.
Some of you might not be big fans
of the whole corporation thing either;
after all there is a Starbucks on every
street corner of America blasting Mi-
chael Buble to anyone within earshot.
So what are you to do when you're
dyingfor a delicious pick me up?
Well lucky for us, Gainesville's got
some sweet locally owned and oper-
ated coffee digs that won't kill your
budget. Plus they can give you the
good feeling that comes with support-
ing local businesses. I went to three
Wi-Fi-connected coffee havens close
to campus - Maude's, Volta and Kar-
ma Cream - to see what they've got
to offer.

Maude's:
Maude's Classic Cafe, 101 SE Sec-
ond Place, is ironically situated across
the street from the downtown Star-
bucks.
It has a nice covered patio outside
and a big interior.
Some desserts are available, fa-
mously the chocolate mousse cake,
as well as breakfast and lunch.
As far as the coffee goes, I tried
their most popular drink: the Maude's


House Iced Coffee. It was nice and
light with a pleasant hint of cinnamon
and even had a little savory flavor of
honey.
The pleasant two-person team on
shift explained that they really enjoy
forming relationships with their cli-
ents.
"Isn't that right, Frank?" calls one
worker to a man sitting in the corner,
who confirms with a casual thumbs-
up.

Volta:
If you're feeling a bit more exotic or
taking someone on a first date, try go-
ing to Volta Coffee, Tea & Chocolate,
48 SW 2nd St.
The owner, Anthony Rue, is kind of
obsessed with coffee - seriously, ob-
sessed.
"We send our people out to seek
out roasters with the best coffee from
around the world," Rue says with a
huge spark of excitement. "We make
sure we get the freshest beans pos-
sible, which means a lot of our cof-
fees are seasonal due to their harvest
dates."
From Ethiopia to Peru, the menu
inside is constantly updated with new
brews from around the world.
And it's notjustthe beans he's con-
sumed with. Rue sends his baristas off
to national and state wide barista com-
petitions to be judges and to show ev-
eryone that Gainesville can rep some
serious coffee skills.


He insisted that I try their house
cappuccino, which was served with a
fantastic presentation. I'm usually not
a cappuccinofan, butthis cup was sur-
prisingly smooth. Before I knew it my
mug was empty and Rue was smiling
from ear to ear once he saw I downed
the whole thing in record time.

Karma Cream:
The last stop on my coffee crusade
was Karma Cream, 1025 W University
Ave., a hot spot for vegans, organic-
goods lovers and fair-trade coffee
fans. In fact, they only serve fair-trade
coffees and espressos, which means
with every beverage you get a free side
order of clean conscience.
They're open until 3 a.m., accom-
modating those all night study ses-
sions very well.
And their coffee is awesome. As
soon as I took my first sip of their
Cubano Con Leche, I had a profound
coffeegasm. The drink is sweet and
extremely delicious, almost like a des-
sert.
Payal Patel, the barista on shift,
told me what she thinks makes the
store special.
"We're a lot more than just coffee,
tea and snacks," she said with a shy
smile, "We reallytryto make a friendly
environment."
As I visited each coffee shop, I start-
ed to see what sets them apart from
their corporate counterparts: passion.
The owners and employees really en-

joy making coffee, gettingto know you
and making sure your visit is perfect.
Goingto these cafes is a very personal


experience, and it really makes you
feel like you're worth more than the
next medium-sized vanilla latte.

Enea, Walton reunite in professional softball league


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer
gluca@alligatororg


When Tim Walton and Franc-
esca Enea first met back in 2002,
neither could have predicted how
much they would accomplish to-
gether.
At the time, Walton was just
an assistant coach at Oklahoma
and Enea had not yet started her
high school career.
But when Enea's older sister,
Christina, became a Sooner, Fran-
cesca and Walton began to forge a
relationship early.
Eight years and 232 UF wins
later, the duo has taken their
game to the National Pro Fast-
pitch league, where Walton is
coaching the Kissimme-based
USSSA Pride and Enea is playing
outfield for him.
And while Enea and Wal-
ton have faced a steep learning
curve during their inaugural two
months, both are happy with how
far they have come and are excit-
ed to take things even further.
"I really had a rude awaken-
ing the first couple games," Enea
said. "I realized I needed to make
certain mental and swing adjust-
ments, but at this point I think
every game and every at-bat I'm
getting better and definitely mak-
ing progress.
"It's an amazing league and
I'm so happy I'm in it."

ROUGH TRANSITION
Enea, like countless athletes
before her, has found the transi-
tion from college athletics to the
professional ranks to be difficult.
The 2010 UF graduate is hit-
ting just .182 with two home runs
and six RBIs through her first 18
games, but there are many expla-
nations for her unflattering statis-
tics.
Enea and Walton were late to
join the Pride because of Florida's
deep run in the NCAA Tourna-
ment.
Although the Pride season
began on May 31, Enea did not
make her NPF debut until the
11th game of the season after


Former UF outfielder Francesca Enea is now a member of the National Pro Fastpitch's USSSA Pride. She
is hitting .182 with two home runs and six RBIs through her first 18 games.


playing with UF in the Women's
College World Series.
Enea ended her Gators career
in an 0-for-24 slump and was ex-
pected to return to form against
some of the best pitchers in the
world. But she successfully put
her struggles behind her and de-
livered her first career hit in her
third NPF at-bat.
"I was really nervous getting
to play for a new team, but once
I got here and started hitting and
throwing the ball around it was
like I started something new,"
Enea said. "It was a new chapter
and Florida and college softball
were behind me."
Because of how the NPF op-
erates, new players and new


coaches can have a difficult time
making an early impression. The
league only consists of four teams,
leading to loaded rosters and stiff
competition each game.

"She's always smiling and
she's just got that person-
ality; that charisma."
Jessica Mendoza
USSSA Pride outfielder

"Every player in this league
has really accomplished a lot,"
Walton said. "There are no free
outs, no easy pitchers, and no off
days."
Every team Enea faces has gold


medalists or former All-Ameri-
cans like Jennie Finch of Chicago
and Monica Abbott of Tennessee.
This drastic jump in the level
of competition typically leads to
poor hitting numbers from first-
year players. Of the five rookies
on the Pride, none are batting bet-
ter than .244.
"Not only are the pitchers
throwing different stuff at you
but they're smart, too," Enea said.
"They know how to set hitters up,
especially rookie hitters."
Walton and Enea are also faced
with a brutally busy schedule, as
the team plays 56 games in 84
days, including 22 in the month
of July.
The hectic schedule means the


Pride is limited to just one prac-
tice per week, forcing Walton to
implement changes on the fly.
"If we're struggling we only
have one day to fix it," Walton
said. "It's harder to get everything
to gel properly and get communi-
cation right at this level."
Communication is something
that has never been an issue for
Enea, who was a vocal leader
from the moment she stepped on
the Florida campus and has con-
tinued that trend in the pros.
Enea has kept a level head de-
spite fighting for playing time for
the first time in three years and
has even bridged the gap between
Walton and her teammates due to
her experience in his system.
"She's always smiling and
she's just got that personality; that
charisma," outfielder and gold
medalist Jessica Mendoza said.
"Franny is such a humble player
and she's always looking to learn
when she's not playing."

COACHING CURVE
Walton has only coached the
team during home games to balance
his work with the Gators, but he has
still impressed his players with his
ability to adjust to a different style
of play.
"He's done a great job of coming
in and using his style, but learning
from us, too," Mendoza said. "He
asks us a lot of questions, respects
us, and really treats us like profes-
sional athletes."
The entire season has been a
learning experience for Walton, with
the Pride having to manufacture
runs more than the Gators did this
past season, when UF hit a school
record 109 home runs.
Working in the NPF has also al-
lowed Walton to work with fast and
athletic players - the type of athletes
he hopes to bring to Florida in the
coming years.
"It's been nice," Walton said.
"I've learned a lot of things from
some of these players. I've gained so
much confidence coaching this team
because I watch the way I run a prac-
tice here and it validates the way I
work with my teams at Florida."

Moody prepared to take on bigger role in UF offense


Gators RBs to carry heavier workload


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Staff Writer
tjett@alligator org

Emmanuel Moody admits he
was a selfish running back when
he first arrived in Gainesville.
Transferring from Southern
Cal in 2007, Moody says he was
too concerned with building off
the stats he posted during his time
with the Trojans. How many car-
ries would he get? Yards? Touch-
downs?
But, through two seasons at UF,
Moody has yet to put up numbers
quite as good as he did with USC,
where he rushed for 459 yards and
was named the Pacific-10 Confer-
ence Offensive Freshman of the
Year by Sporting News.
Splitting carries with three oth-
er backs and a now-legendary op-
tion quarterback has left him with
only 58 carries in each of the past
two years. While handling such a
light load, however, Moody came
to a realization.
"This is my 15th year playing
football and personal goals really
are almost foolish," he said at UF's
media day on Aug. 10. "This is a
team game, you have to have team
goals."
Ironically, the redshirt senior
may have made this realization
just as his role in the UF offense
is about to increase. With quarter-
back John Brantley taking over for
Tim Tebow, the Gators' coaching
staff has made it clear the offense


will be tweaked to fit their its per- Demps, by comparison, was sec-
sonnel. ond on the team with 99 carries.
With Tebow gone, so too is the While none of the running
idea of the UF quarterback receiv- backs will suggest they are happy
ing the bulk of the team's carries. Tebow is gone, each one admitted
Last season, Tebow carried the they are excited about their ex-
ball 217 times. Running back Jeff panded role.


"Who doesn't want that?" run-
ning backs coach Stan Drayton
said. "They're competitors. They
want, in their minds, to have an
effect on the football game. As
a running back, with the ball in
our hands, we definitely have a
chance to have a major effect on
the game."


Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
UF running back Emmanuel Moody is expected to benefit from Tim Tebow's departure. He received 58
carries last season, while Tebow racked up 217 rushing attempts.


And while the team loses a
weapon in Tebow's legs, the
Gators' rushing attack will actu-
ally be more versatile this season,
Drayton said. Because Brantley is
more comfortable dropping back
than Tebow was, UF will keep
defenses off balance by switching
between the spread and under-
center formations.
Drayton added that losing
Tebow will make recruiting run-
ning backs easier, pointing out
freshman Mack Brown, the No.
13 running back in the nation last
year, according to Rivals.com.
While watching the Gators, Brown
said he knew the running backs'
roles would change with Brantley
at quarterback.
"If you've got a major playmak-
er, you've got to have the ball in
his hands," Brown said. "But since
Tebow left, some of the carries
have fallen in our hands, so we've
just got to do what we can with it,
do our best with it."
In particular, the running backs
will need to come up big in short
yardage situations, when Tebow
powered his way to many of his
57 career rushing touchdowns.
At 215 pounds, Moody is now the
heaviest ball carrier on the team,
meaning his number could get
called a lot.
He doesn't care about the stats
that come with those carries, but
that doesn't mean he isn't happy.
"There will be a lot more car-
ries to go around to the running
backs," he said, "and that's why
we came to Florida - to run the
ball."


NCAA teams should not ban NFL representatives from practice


L yet's pretend your high school refused
to release your grades to universities
across the country.
They don't want these institutions distract-
ing students from their studies. As a result,
your SAT and ACT scores will be the sole rea-
son you attend college.
Now, tell me why anybody would enroll
there.
My next question is, why would a high
school create these unfair rules?
This same thing is going on in college foot-
ball. After a recent string of allegations involv-
ing players receiving improper benefits from
agents, coaches have thrown around the idea


of banning NFL scouts and team representa-
tives from practices to avoid any trouble or
distractions.
Alabama became the first school to actually
act upon the threat.
But this shouldn't become a trend, because
it isn't going to work.
I understand that Nick Saban, Urban Meyer
and the rest of the coaching community want
to distance themselves from these "scum-
bags," as Meyer refers to them, but in the end
it's going to hurt these storied programs.
When high school athletes are in the pro-
cess of choosing a college to attend, they want
to go to the place that gives them the best


chance at making the

UF FOOTBALL

Bostic and Jenkins in friendly competition for MLB spot


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligatororg
Before the Gators will know if
they can replace Brandon Spikes,
they'll have to decide who will try to
fill his shoes.
The position battle is down to
close friends Jelani Jenkins and Jon
Bostic.
"We're not even thinking about
that really," Jenkins said. "Every
practice, we're rooting each other on
when we make a big play and try-


ing to get each other better. I think
our friendship really carries onto the
field."
With a thick 6-foot-i, 238-pound
frame, Bostic looks the part moreso
than Jenkins, who's listed 15 pounds
lighter. But bulking up too much
would be a disservice to one of Jen-
kins' best assets: his speed.
A standout at fullback and line-
backer in high school, Jenkins said
playing in the middle is his favorite
task, as he has the best chance for ac-
tion and can read the quarterback.
He's gotten work at the strong-


side spot as well, part of lineback-
ers coach D.J. Durkin's plan to cross
train his players
and rotate them
often.
"Any of those
guys could see
time anywhere,"
Durkin said.
"We're going
Jenkins to find the best
combination of
three that we can. Jelani has a lot of
great attributes about him, and I'd
say he's going to find a way onto the


field somewhere."
At times, Jenkins and Bostic have
lined up side-by-side in the middle
of a 3-4 formation, and while there
has been speculation the Gators will
use that set often this season, Dur-
kin and his players repeatedly used
"three" when discussing the number
of starting linebackers at UF's media
day on Aug. 10.
Beyond the friendship between
Jenkins and Bostic, the group of
linebackers has bonded over dinner-
and-a-movie dates. Well, make that
lunch-and-game film.


The players received DVDs with
their performance at spring practice,
and they've made daily trips to UF's
film room to watch those clips and
whatever else they could get their
hands on, a practice often utilized
by predecessors Spikes and Ryan
Stamper.
"We were watching some stuff
from like, I don't even know what
year - Brandon Siler was here and
they were at Alabama," Bostic said.
"We just like watching film, watch-
ing the game of football and learn-
ing the game every day."

UF FOOTBALL

Brown ready to shine after two-year injury absence


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator org


Jeremy Brown is thankful every day he laces up his
cleats for football practice.
That's because at one time, just putting his socks on
was almost impossible.
A back injury suffered during a weightlifting session
kept Brown out of action for nearly two full years, causing
him to consider quitting the sport altogether.
But after a recovery fraught with a deluge of doctor
visits and plenty of pain, the redshirt sophomore is bat-
tling for a starting spot at cornerback this season, and he's
hoping to reach the potential he flashed in his first semes-
ter on campus.
"Right now, I'm the healthiest I've been since I've been
here," Brown said.

DERAILED
Brown enrolled early for the spring semester of 2008,
and it didn't take long for the Orlando native to impress
coaches.
His performance in spring practice had him ahead of
classmate Janoris Jenkins, who started as a freshman and
is expected to be one of the nation's top corners this sea-
son. But Brown never got a chance to shine like Jenkins
did.
During a summer weightlifting session shortly before
two-a-days, Brown was hoping to leave the gym with a
new personal best in the leg press. Instead, he hobbled out
with a serious injury.
While lifting, his back came off the seat and gave out.
He said it was the worst pain he'd ever felt, and with good
reason.
The damage: two ruptured discs, inflamed facet joints
and nerve damage.
The injury set off a tour of back specialists around
Gainesville, so many that Brown couldn't even give an
estimate.
To relieve some of the pain, doctors burned nerves in
his back to kill them off - a procedure called a rhizotomy
- but that was far from a solution.
At times, Brown had trouble walking, sleeping, dress-
ing himself and even leaning over to wash his face.
"I just thought, 'I'm done,"' Brown said. "I didn't think
I'd be able to recover fully and just get back to myself. I


"-- - s - 6


felt like I was always going to have a (mental) block with
my back and it was always going to be an issue."

ROCK BOTTOM
As the doctor visits mounted, Brown didn't see much
improvement with his back. If everyday tasks were a
chore, how could he hope to play football again?
He said he thought about giving up the sport, largely
because he wanted to be able to support his 3-year-old
son, Jaden.
"His life is more precious than football," Brown said.
"Football is not who I am, it's just what I do. At the end
of the day, I have to think about my future. Am I going to


be able to walk again? Am I going to be able to interact?
If we couldn't get this fixed, you always think about just
hanging it up."
In his darkest period, Brown turned to running back
Emmanuel Moody, one of the team's most devout Chris-
tians and a player with plenty of experience when it comes
to injuries.
Since transferring from Southern Cal, Moody has bat-
tled nagging ankle injuries, and he counseled Brown on
his faith and how to deal with being dinged up.
"When it first happened, he hit rock bottom," Moody

Wilder set to announce decision


* HE IS CONSIDERING UF.

By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer
tgreen@alligatororg

Wednesday could be a big day
for a select few schools and their
2011 recruiting classes.
And UF happens to be one of
those select few.
Both cornerback Nick Wai-
some and athlete James Wilder Jr.
are scheduled to announce their
college destinations that day, and
both have the Gators among their
top choices.
Waisome, a four-star recruit
out of Groveland South Lake,
plans to orally commit Wednes-
day during a nationally televised
announcement.
His decision could take place
at the ESPN Club in Downtown
Disney, but details have not been
finalized. Wilder, a five-star ath-
lete from Tampa Plant, plans to
announce his decision the same
day.
Wilder's high school coach,
Robert Weiner, confirmed last
Monday to Rivals.com that Wild-
er, the No. 3 recruit in the nation,
will make his announcement
Wednesday and it is expected to
happen around 5 p.m. Wilder has
said he would like to make his an-
nouncement in the gymnasium at
Plant.
Wilder is one of the most cov-
eted recruits in the nation and
plays running back as well as line-
backer and defensive end.
"I've slept on it a lot," Wilder
said at an announcement for his
teammates Phillip Ely and Tony
Posada. "Today I'll have FSU in
the lead, tomorrow I'll have UF
and in three days I'll have Geor-
gia. ... I've still got a lot of think-
ing to do in the last seven days."
He was thought to be a UF lean


up until recently when he didn't
show up at the Gators' sixth an-
nual Friday Night Lights camp
last month. Instead, he was visit-
ing FSU that day and missed the
camp because of it.
Waisome, the No. 7 cornerback
recruit in the nation according to
Rivals.com, impressed those in at-
tendance at Friday Night Lights
and worked on developing his re-
lationship with UF's coaches.


He attended the camp a day af-
ter taking a visit to FSU and spoke
favorably of each school's football
program.
"I know where I'm leaning, but
I'm probably going to sit down
with my parents and talk things
over," Waisome said after the
camp last month.
His top five schools are Flori-
da, Florida State, South Carolina,
Georgia and LSU.

Second corner spot


still up for grabs

BROWN, from page 43

said. "Injuries are humbling because people put you on a
pedestal when you play for the Gators, and when you get
an injury, you're that forgotten guy.
"It was a humbling experience for him, and he's healed
from his back, and it looks like he's having a great year
this year."

BOUNCING BACK
After the Sugar Bowl in January, Brown said he finally
started to see improvement with his back.
He went through spring practice and is battling Moses
Jenkins for the starting spot opposite Janoris Jenkins, and
while he says he's fully healthy for the first time since the
spring of 2008, every play can be a challenge.
The physical pain is mostly gone. He still feels tight-
ness in his back from time to time, but that's something he
says he just has to tough out.
Besides, that's much better than the sharp, stinging
pain that plagued him before.
The bigger issue is one faced by many athletes recov-
ering from serious injury: playing without
fear of another ailment.
"It's still tough," Brown said. "I'd be ly-
ing if I said, 'Mentally, I'm just ready to go.'
Football There are certain things I second-guess, like
should I really just go up and throw myself
in there? In the back of my head I'm just thinking, 'Man,
this might be my back again.'"
With his recovery complete, the mental hurdle is the
final one for Brown to clear.
One of his close friends, safety Will Hill, said he sees
Brown hitting his stride, but he's still waiting for him to
regain his confidence and hit his full potential.
"I [told Brown], 'By you being 100 percent, by you be-
ing on the field, it makes me a better safety,'" Hill said. "I
know what type of player he is and the things we expect
out of him. I know what he can do and what he could
become."

1 ESTATE OF THE PROGRAM


For the first time in a long while, expectations for Florida football are a bit tempered. That comes
with losing leaders and NFL talents like Tim Tebow, Braudon Spikes, Joe Haden and Aaron
Hernandez, but strong recruiting classes have kept the roster full of ability. Potential aside, there
are plenty of questions about this team that won't be answered until at least a few gaunes into the
season.
Quarterback.John Brantley faces the biggest challenge: taking over an offense with an inexpe-
rienced receiving corps and doing it in the wake of Tebow's departure. All eyes will be on the
redshirtjunior, and he'll lean on a veteran offensive line and stable of running backs, led by.Jeff
Demps and Emmanuel Moody.
Andre Debose and Chris Rainey will be the spark plugs at the slot receiver role formerly held by
Percy Harvin, and quarterback-turned-tight end Jordan Reed will take over for Hernandez.
A host of big names are gone from the defense, but a mix of seasoned players and highly touted
youngsters will fill the holes. The secondary needs a solid corner opposite.Janoris. enkins but
should be the best unit, and depth on the defensive line and at linebacker should mean heavy
rotations to keep players fresh.
'Ihe Gators won't have a ton of time to work out the kinks, either. An uncharacteristically chal-
lenging non-conference gane with UISF comes in \eek 2, followed by trips to Tennessee and
defending chanp Alabana in two of the next three games.



Coach Amanda Butler's future looked bright after her first two seasons with the Gators. But after
taking a step back last year, Butler will need to rally her squad if she wants to get IUF on par with
conference powerhouses Tennessee and LSt.
This season could prove to be the most challenging campaign under Butler's leadership. UIF will
have to replace about 56 percent of its offense from a team that finished just 15-17 last season.
Optimists could see the large unount of turnover as a positive after such a mediocre season, but
Butler will have a difficult time replacing senior guard Steffi Sorensen, who led the Gators with a
9.6 scoring average and 83 three-pointers.
A telling sign of the frustration at IUF last season was the transfer of underclassmen Christal
Caldwell, Tessah Holt and Trunae Lucas. Those departures, combined with five graduating
seniors, leave only six returnees. In response, Butler hit the recruiting trails hard in a rebuilding
effort and hauled in six preps, most notably Deaundra Young, a 6-foot-2 power forward from
Titusville Astronaut High.




After falling in the NCAA Round of 16 last spring, the men's tennis team will look to rebound
by leaning on Paris-based senior Alexandre Lacroix. Competing in the No. 1 singles position for
the Gators and teaming with then-senior Antoine Benneteau last year, Lacroix won a combined
65 matches, ending the season as an Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-American and ranked
No. 12 nationally.
Including Lacroix, the Gators return five of their six singles competitors from the teain's season-
ending loss against Georgia. Expect the biggest improvement from sophomores Bob Van Over-
beek and Sekou Bangoura.Jr. The duo earned SEC All-Freshmen Teamn honors last spring after
enrolling at UF in January. Getting more time to work with coach Andy.Jackson can only improve
both players.
The teamn's ..-. , i ..ii1. will be replacing Benneteau, a career 42-19 singles competitor. But if
losing the No. 3 singles player is the biggest concern, expectations should be high this upcoming
season.



The Gators enter this season hoping to win their fifth-consecutive Southeastern Conference
Championship, and the team might need to lean on its offense to extend that streak. IUF returns
its top five scorers from 2009, including redshirt sophomore McKenzie Barney, who led the
Gators with seven goals in conference play.
\hen Barney emerged as an offensive leader late in the season, coach Becky Burleigh moved her
to the temn's lone forward position. But that move could be short-lived as redshirt senior Ashlee
Elliott, the teamn's starting forward entering 2009, returns for a fifth season after suffering a torn
ACL early last year. Regardless of where Elliott and Barney line up, the Gators will have plenty of
offensive options. And the team will need them, as three of the four starting defenders from UF's
season-ending loss to Oregon State are gone.



The men's golf team will lose its two top golfers from last season with the graduation of Ty7son
Alexander and Tin McKennev.
Seniors Bank Vongvanij, who shot under par in two of the final four events of the spring season,
and Alex Echavarria, who finished the NCAA Championships at even par, will lead the tean in
the fall with the absence of Alexander and McKenney.
However, the women's golf team will return its five starters this year.
Senior.Jessica Yadloczky and juniors Evain ensen and Andrea \Vatts will be looked upon to
make the jump and provide veteran leadership. Sophomore Isabelle Lendl will attempt to build
upon her stellar freshman' season. They hope to carry the Gators into the NCAA Chamnpionships
this year, a tournament they missed in the spring.


'Ihere's two ways to look at the upcoming UF basketball season. The team is returning all five of
its starters, so either it will be better for all its experience, or it will be about the same for its small
amount of turnover.
Coach Billy Donovan got the Gators to commit to defense a year ago, but easy baskets were hard
to come by, a trend that could continue without much of a change in the temn's ball handlers.
Freshman Patric Young, a McDonald's All-American, is the biggest addition to the roster, as he
comes in with similar hype as Kenny Boynton did a year ago. Young is a physical front court
anger.
Small forward Chandler Parsons took his gaune to the next level a season ago and will be counted
on to lead this team in his senior season, even with fellow seniors Vernon Macklin and Alex Tvus
around.
Macklin showed the potential that made him a top recruit coming out of high school at various
times in 2009, but he was inconsistent from gane to game. And Tyus dropped his field goal per-
centage from 59.1 his sophomore season to 50.3 his junior year. If he can't return to his efficient
form, he could lose a lot of minutes to Young and sophomore Erik Murphy.
The biggest question might be whether I F's young backcourt from a season ago can make the
leap. Junior Erving Walker struggled at times with his new position at point guard, and sopho-
more Kenny Boynton's outside shot was nonexistent for much of the year.



Last season the Gators did not win the Southeastern Conference for the first time in 19 seasons.
On top of that, they lost the school's all-time digs leader, Elyse Cusack, to graduation. But the
outlook on the upcoming season is still bright
Florida returns All-American Kelly Murphy, who recorded a school-record nine triple-doubles
last season, and outside hitter Kristy.Jaeckel.
But IUF experienced some unexpected departures in the offseason when setter Brynja Rodgers
and outside hitter Colleen \Vard transferred.
Coach Mary \Vise will attempt to fill those voids with incoming transfers Stephanie Ferrell,
Cintiya Roberto and Tangerine \Viggs. Meanwhile, senior Erin Fleming will be the starting libero
in place of Cusack.
Fleming did not start a match last season but will be looked upon as a catalyst for the Gators of-
fense this year.
A mix of veterans will fill out the rest of the lineups.




The women's tennis tean cane close to capturing the NCAA Chamnpionship, only to fall short
4-3 against Stanford in MaN. Vhile rebuilding for another run at the title, coach Roland Thorn-
qvist can rest easy knowing his squad is set at the top.
Florida was led by a pair of sensational freshmen last season in Lauren Embree and Allie Will. In
their loss to the Cardinal, the Gators used Embree and Will in the Nos. 1 and 2 positions, respec-
tively. Embree, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's National Rookie of the Year, earned one
of LIF's two singles victories that day.
That win gave Embree her 20th of the spring, lifting her to the No. 8 national ranking at the sea-
son's conclusion. Will was just as effective in her first year at IUF, going 26-1 in singles competition
and ending the year as the No. 11-ranked singles player.
Thornqlist's biggest concern this season will be replacing Embree's doubles partner, Marrit Boon-
stra. Boonstra, a three-tilne All-Alnerican, was a combined 152-39 between singles and doubles
play at LIF.



With a women's national title and men's National Swinmmer of the Year, last season was a big one
for the IF swimming program. Both squads will hope to build on that success when this year's
schedule kicks off on Sept. 25.
lThe IUF men's swim team returns Brett Fraser, Sebastien Rousseau, Rodion Davelaar, Joey Pe-
draza and Conor Dwyer, the 2010 Division I National Men's Swiininer of the Year.
The women's squad will have to overcome the loss of 2010 Female Diver of the Year Kara
Salamone but retains SEC Female Swinmmer of the Year Genmma Spofforth. 'lhe Gators will also
be celebrating the debut of a notable newcomer, freshman Elizabeth Beisel, who broke a 26-year-
old IF record in the 400-ineter individual medley and the school mark for the 200 IM during a
competition this month.




The IF women's cross country team is coming off a stellar season in which it won three of seven
events.
But this season it will be without one of its better runners: Stacey.johnson. She finished in the
top 10 in four of the five events she competed in last fall. The squad closed out the season with a
seventh-place finish in the NCAA Championships.
'1Tings are different with the LIF men's cross country team.
The men did not have quite the season they were looking for as ithe failed to earn a bid to the
NCAA Chamnpionship.
But the Gators hope to change that this year. They return Anthony Morales, who was the first LIF
runner to finish in three of the five competitions he participated in.

UF FOOTBALL

Debose, Rainey learning to play "Percy" position


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Staff Writer
tjett@alligator org

Andre Debose said he didn't
want the hype, not that fans were
going to oblige.
When Debose signed with UF
in 2009, he immediately drew com-
parisons to Percy Harvin. The You-
Tube highlight tapes showed De-
bose could be a matchup nightmare
with his big-play potential when
the ball was in his hands or in the
air, making him a natural fit to re-
place Harvin in the Gators' hybrid
position.
In the weeks before and after
National Signing Day, Debose tried
to convince outsiders that he wasn't
Percy 2.0. But the comparisons kept
coming, and even coach Urban
Meyer wasn't helping him stay out
of the spotlight.
"I've got to tell you, this Andre
Debose - I know I can't single guys
out, but I'm going to single him
out," Meyer said after he signed.
"He's as good as there is. I think
he's the best player in America. ...
Before I came down here, I flipped
on his highlight tape one more time
so I'll leave with a big smile on my
face."
Before he could practice with the
Gators, however, Debose suffered a
hamstring injury in May 2009 while
running track for Sanford Seminole
High. Once he enrolled, UF train-
ers discovered Debose had tendon


damage that required season-end-
ing surgery.
But Debose called the injury "a
blessing in disguise." While fans
became infatuated with the Gators'

he and junior Chris Rainey compete
for playing time at the slot position
made famous by Harvin. And with
that attention comes pressure, as
the performance of whoever plays
in the hybrid role could determine
how explosive UF's offense will be
this season.
With Debose injured and Rainey

had been. In 2008, Harvin touched

yards of total offense and 17 touch-
downs.
Last season, receiver Riley Coo-
per led all non-return men with 975
yards of total offense - all but 14 of
which came through the air.
UF wants defenses to account for
the slot receiver running the ball,
though, and receivers coach Zach
Azzanni said Rainey has a slight
edge because of his experience and
the extra 15 practices he spent in the
hybrid spot during the spring.
For his part, Debose's athletic
ability could give defensive coor-
dinators nightmares, Azzanni said.
But getting back on the field, and
into the spotlight, will depend on
his ability to learn the offense.
"He runs really fast and he
jumps really high and he has great
body position catching the ball,"
Azzanni said. "Now it's my job
to make sure he does all the other
things, the details."

Pouncey embraces new leadership role as senior


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achlang@alligator org


This season is going to be different for Flori-
da offensive lineman Mike Pouncey.
When his twin brother, Maurkice, decided to
forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft,
it marked the first time the two wouldn't play
on the same team.
But Mike has taken full advantage of his
alone time in the offseason and has begun to
carve out his own identity.
"I knew when I decided to come back to
school that I was going to have to take on that
role with (Tim) Tebow and (Brandon) Spikes
leaving," Mike said. "I just accepted it and I've
taken it on with a full head of steam."
Mike isn't just stepping into his brother's
leadership role from last season, he will also be
moving one spot over from guard to center -
the position Maurkice played at Florida.
The similarities don't stop there.
Teammates hardly notice Maurkice is gone
because the two have such similar personalities.
Mike keeps the locker room loose with his sense
of humor, but he also knows when it's time to
work and get serious.
"They are true twins," redshirt senior Carl
Johnson said. "They are identical. Those two
act the same no matter what they are doing. It's
kind of like having a little bit of Maurkice here
with Mike."
In his UF career, Mike has played on both
sides of the ball and earned a starting job as a
freshman. Both things have helped him become
one of the most respected players on the team.
Mike's way of leading will be similar to that
of a former UF player.
"Mike is our head-and-above-shoulders


leader this year - the Tebow," Johnson said.
"He has that same will. He just can't begin to
think of losing."
With UF's new quarterback, John Brantley,
possessing a quiet, low-key demeanor, Mike
will be vital in helping maintain intensity on the
offensive side of the ball.
"I'm not going to be doing the hoo-rah kind
of stuff," Brantley said. "But that's why we have
other guys on the team that will do that stuff to
get the team going."
"I knew when I decided to come
back to school that I was going to
have to take on that role with (Tim)
Tebow and (Brandon) Spikes leav-
ing."
Mike Pouncey
Florida offensive lineman

However, Mike knows there are other things
that come with being one of the faces of the
team. The offseason allegations involving his
brother taking $100,000 from an agent before he
left UF have been a wake up call.
He said he thinks twice before doing any-
thing because he knows he has a target on his
back now.
With his brother playing for the Pittsburgh
Steelers, people are noticing a different mental-
ity from the 6-foot-4, 310-pound senior.
"I see a guy that's really set on being a lead-
er," said offensive coordinator Steve Addazio,
who also handles the offensive line. "I'm really
enjoying that side of him. He's always had great
personality, but it's kind of his own leadership-
side personality coming out now. It's not a tag
team - it's his deal."


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
With the departure of Tim Tebow and Brandon Spikes, UF center Mike Pouncey will
be looked upon as the vocal leader of the team this season.

UF's 2011 recruiting class up to 13 oral commits


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer
tgreen@alligator org

It hasn't been as eventful as June, but
since the start of July, the Gators have made
strides along the recruiting trail.
UF picked up six oral commitments
in June: four-star wide receiver Javares
McRoy, three-star fullback Hunter Joyer,
three-star offensive lineman Tommy Jor-
dan, four-star linebacker Ryan Shazier,


three-star wide receiver Ja'Juan Story and
kicker Kyle Christy.
Since July 1, the Gators have landed com-
mitments from three more recruits, held
their Friday Night Lights camp, reaffirmed
commitments from a couple prospects and
put themselves in position to land some of
the top talent in the state.
In the hours leading up to the team's sixth
annual Friday Night Lights camp, which is
one of the biggest recruiting events in the
nation, UF added the 11th and 12th mem-


bers to its 2011 football recruiting class.
First, the Gators landed a verbal from
Dover, Del., four-star offensive lineman
Trip Thurman, who joins Jordan as the only
two commits on the line so far.
Thurman made his commitment while
visiting UF.
"I knew that Florida was where I want-
ed to be, so I made my decision," Thurman
told the Gainesville Sun.
After that, UF shored up a commitment
from Pensacola Pine Forest defensive back


Louchiez Purifoy. While he is not rated by
Rivals.com, Purifoy garnered offers from
Auburn and Alabama before choosing
Florida.
Later that day when UF held its Friday
Night Lights camp, some of the top talent
from the state and other prospects from
around the country took the field at Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium to try to impress the
UF coaching staff.
While many recruits were trying to earn

Things to know before heading to your first Gators football game


Welcome to Florida. Take
out your notebook, grab
a pen and get ready to
take your first class because I'm
about to drop some knowledge
on the incoming freshmen.
One of the most important
and fun elements of your college
experience will be going to foot-
ball games at Ben Hill Griffin Sta-
dium (we'll start the lesson here:
we call it "The Swamp"), so I'm
about to arm you with five help-
ful pieces of advice.
I present to you: Swamptology
101.

Make a block: The only thing
better than watching a game with
a handful of your closest friends
is watching a game with 20 or 30
of your closest friends.
Blocks aren't just for sororities
and frats, anyone can form one
by gathering some Gatorls and
attending a meeting. The Uni-
versity Athletic Association will
say you need a certain amount
of people (I think it's 25. I don't


remember because it's not impor-
tant), but they're very good about
working with you if you come up
a couple people shy.
Your high fives and chest
pounds will significantly increase
in a block. The one downside is
taking on the role of block leader.
For some reason, friends like to
make it as hard as possible on
you to get them their tickets.
For all you block leaders out
there, I've been in your shoes,
and I'm sorry.

Tailgate: Somewhere. Any-
where. But make sure you tail-
gate. Set up a grill, grab some
beer and get a cornhole set be-
cause tailgating is just as much a
part of gameday tradition as tim-
eouts and touchdowns.
The first two home games are
noon and 12:21 p.m. starts, so I'm
going to rock your world: post-
game tailgating is not only OK
but encouraged in this college
town.
Grill out and drink up be-

night. There
Kyle Maistri are plenty
Kyle Points of great
kmaistri@allIgator org spots up
Twitter @KMaistri and down
University
Avenue and various apartment
complexes. Do your homework
and find a spot.

Don't get too drunk: I know,
brah, kickoff isn't for another
hour and you can pound six more
Genny Lights (if you haven't ex-
perienced Genny Light, let's just
say those six cans will set you
back about $2), but you will re-
gret that decision when you're
going on hour three of standing
on the bleachers in the 95-degree
heat.
When you're partying the
Friday night before a day game,
drink a Gatorade before you go


to bed and a Vitamin Water Re-
vive when you wake up so you
can make it to the game before
the end of the first quarter. Don't
be that guy who stumbles into
the stadium, falls off the bleach-
ers and throws up all over the bro
wearing the Croakies and boat
shoes in front of you.

The dude in the red hat is
your friend: When the game
goes to a commercial (timeouts,
end of a quarter, play under re-
view, etc.), an official in a red hat
will walk onto the field. This is a
powerful man, despite his amus-
ing attire, and the game will start
when, and only when, he walks
off the field.
Why am I telling you this? Af-
ter you ignore tip No. 3, you're
going to want to milk those
rare sit down opportunities for
all they're worth. While your
friends are all standing a min-
ute longer than need be because
they don't know when the action
will resume, you can be sure to

maximize your sit-down time by
keeping tabs on the dude in the
red hat.

Learn the players' numbers:
It's near impossible to read a
name off a jersey from 85 rows
up, so start getting to know the
roster by numbers. Just because
the running back takes the ball,
that doesn't mean Jeff Demps
was running it. And just because
a defensive end sacks the quar-
terback, that doesn't mean it
was Justin Trattou bringing him
down.
In football, you're allowed to
do this thing called "substitut-
ing," so don't be the one cheer-
ing on John Brantley in the fourth
quarter of a blowout when Trey
Burton is in the game.
For the returning classes,
there's a lot of turnover on the
roster, and it's insulting to both
Andre Debose and everyone
around you to keep calling him
"Wondy." Yeah, he wears No. 4,
but its not funny.

COMMITS, from page 48
attention, the coaches were making
sure that they held onto commit-
ments from a handful of recruits that
already pledged to come to Florida.
Following their showings at the
camp, a few UF commits reaffirmed
their intentions to sign with the
Gators, including Deland four-star
athlete De'Ante "Pop" Saunders.
Four-star tight end A.C. Leonard,
who committed to UF in November,
also reiterated his plans.
"I'm still solid," Leonard said.
Asheville, N.C., four-star defen-
sive end Jeoffrey Pagan was thought
to be wavering on his verbal to UF
after telling the Asheville Citizen-
Times in June that he
Swas close to 50 percent
on UF. But after Fri-
day Night Lights, Pa-
Football gan said he remained
fully committed to the
Gators and would not
make visits to other schools once the
season began.
In August, UF received a commit-
ment from three-star defensive end
Chase Hounshell, who will play of-
fensive tackle in college despite see-
ing some time at defensive end in
high school.
The Gators also vaulted them-
selves to the top of a few elite re-
cruits' lists in the wake of Friday
Night Lights.
"If they run the ball and win games
.. I'm here," four-star running back
Mike Blakely said. "As long as the
running back gets the ball, (the of-
fense) doesn't matter."
Dwyer's Curt Maggitt, the No.
12 defensive end in the nation, also
placed UF atop his list of schools, as
did South Lake four-star cornerback
Nick Waisome, who plans to an-
nounce his decision on Aug. 18.

Freshman trio expects to make immediate impact


All three were ranked top-10 overall recruits


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@alligatororg

The Miami Heat have a Big Three, and now the Gators
have theirs.
"Ronald Powell is Chris Bosh, Sharrif (Floyd) is Dwy-
ane Wade and I'm LeBron (James)," defensive tackle Do-
minique Easley said.
The trio of freshman defensive linemen comes into its
first season at Florida with a lot of hype. Powell, Floyd
and Easley were respectively ranked the Nos. 1, 4 and 7
recruits of the 2010 class according to Rivals.com.
But they aren't backing down from the pressure that
comes with those accolades.
"I do want to be the best defensive end in America,"


Powell said. "As far as expectations, my expectations are
a lot higher than everybody else's."
Defensive line coach Dan McCarney is known to rotate
players on the defensive front throughout the game to uti-
lize UF's depth, which bodes well for the three to receive
playing time immediately.
y And they won't need to bulk up too much
before they're physically ready to play.
Powell has already benchpressed 225
pounds 21 times in one set, Floyd is tipping
Football the scales at 300 pounds and Easley is not
far behind him at 280 pounds.
"I definitely expect to play," Powell said. "I can tell
you one thing about this class, none of these guys want to
sit and wait. None of us."
But their playing time this season is expected to come


as members of the second-string team.
Their relationship began early.
Following Easley's commitment to Florida after the
Under Armour All-America Game on Jan. 2, he sold the
school to Powell and Floyd.
The two then followed in Easley's footsteps and chose
Florida a week later at the U.S. Army All-American
Bowl.
The trio comes in as five-star recruits, but that doesn't
matter to them.
"Take away all the stars, we don't care about them,"
Powell said.
With defensive ends Justin Trattou and Duke Lem-
mens, defensive tackle Terron Sanders and nose guard
Lawrence Marsh leaving after this season, the freshmen
could be pushed to the forefront as soon as next year.
"We can do a lot of great things here," Floyd said.
"We can get a lot of stuff rolling and we can have the SEC
scared of us. We can have it all."


New era of Gators football will be uncertain but fun to watch


Welcome to Year 1, A.T.
Many of you arriving at UF this
year are no doubt lamenting the
timing that caused you to miss watching the
Tim Tebow-led Gators by one season, but
there's plenty to look forward to in 2010.
When I showed up on campus in 2006,
it was for the start of Tebow's reign. And
thanks to four years of dedicated procrasti-
nation, I'll get to see some of the post-Tebow
era as well.
This year's team is mostly a blank slate,
and its development during the season
should be fascinating to watch.
New stars and leaders will emerge (well,
they better, because if they don't, the Gators
are headed to the Capital One Bowl or
worse).


And with Tebow gone, the dawn of a
new age of Gators football is upon us.
Two words have been closely associated
with UF in the past four years: "Tebow" and
"winning."
The Chosen One boosted his program's
profile and was the unquestioned face of the
school during his time in Gainesville, and a
new identity will be emerging soon.
Changes are in store as far as this team's
marketability goes, but there's no reason to
think the wins will disappear. Urban Mey-
er's recruiting wizardry has kept a stockpile
of talent on hand, and there should be plenty
of motivation for these players to step out of
the shadows of their predecessors.
John Brantley will try to carve his niche
in the pantheon of UF quarterbacks, and


Mike McCall
McCallin' It
Like I See It
mmccall@alligator org
Twitter @McCallin It


a stable of running
backs figures to get
a heavier workload
now that Tebow isn't
the first option on the
ground.
Meyer has some-
thing to prove, too.
It's time to find out
who was really run-
ning the show these


last few years.
When Meyer "retired," remember all
those "He just doesn't want to coach with-
out Timmy around" jokes?
The easiest way to quash those rumblings
is for Meyer to keep winning, and if he does,
maybe it means we were watching the "Ur-


ban Era" all along and Tebow's role was
overhyped.
Or maybe we're entering the Age of Ar-
rests, where players getting locked up (two
so far this year!) will make UF the new Thug
U without a Bible-verse-toting face hiding
the ugly side of things.
And maybe the whole concept of what
era we're witnessing is just a concept con-
jured up by a bored columnist.
But one thing is for sure: when you walk
out of here in four or five years, the football
program will look completely different than
it did before you arrived.
That transition starts now. What lies
ahead is unknown, and while it doesn't car-
ry the guaranteed wins of the recent past, it
should be plenty entertaining.

And seriously, boosters?
You're building a statue? As soon
as he leaves? It's like I'm replac-
ing a cross between Herschel
Walker and Paul Bunyan.
It's not the man himself I have
to live up to. It's the man's legacy.

That's
not to dis-
credit the actual player. He was
an All-American. He scored about
700 touchdowns. He could rally
a team at the half just by yelling
uninteresting things like "Let's
go!" and getting red in the face.
I'm not going to do that. Not
because it doesn't sound fun. Not
because it doesn't work. But be-
cause he did it. I'm not him, and
I'm sure you guys will remind


me of that the moment I mess up,
so I might as well distance myself
right now.
If I don't see a wide-open re-
ceiver, check the stadium's light-
ing. Chances are his shadow has
made it too dark for me to see
clearly. To be fair, he didn't put
this pressure on me. You guys
did.
You guys fell in love with
him. Fell in love with the way
he lowered his shoulder, injuries
be damned. Fell in love with the
way he visibly appeared to hate
losing more than anyone else.
Fell in love with the way he stood
for something and, in a society of
camera phones with Internet ac-
cess, never got caught doing any-
thing worse than pose next to a
girl with huge boobs.


But what does any of that have
to do with his play? Remember
that national championship game
in 2007, when he was just a back-
up and the starting quarterback
completed like 70 percent of his
passes? All most people wanted
to talk about was the backup who
went 1 for 1 with a 1-yard touch-
down.
So now he's gone, and you
guys still want to talk about him.
I expect it. Understand it, even.
But you know our offense can be
good without him. You are the
same people who picked us third
in the preseason poll.
Don't ask me anything else
about him, because if we succeed,
it won't be because of him. But if
we lose, it could be because of
him. And, in a way, you."





54, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010


SECOND CORNERBACK SPOT
Contenders: Jeremy Brown and Moses Jenkins

What they bring:
A back injury has kept Jeremy Brown off the field in his first
two years at UF, but his talent cannot be questioned. Before the
injury, he was listed above Janoris Jenkins on the depth chart.
If he can stay healthy, he is the team's second most talented
corner.
Senior Moses Jenkins brings veteran experience. With Joe
Haden and Major Wright now in the NFL, the secondary is in
need of a veteran presence. Although he is not as talented as
Brown, he could fill that void.
Our Pick: If Jeremy Brown can stay healthy, he will be the
starting cornerback opposite of Janoris Jenkins. Coach Urban
Meyer is known to play the most talented players regardless of
experience. If he stays true to this methodology, Brown is the
guy.


DEFENSIVE TACKLE
Contenders: Omar Hunter, Terron Sanders, Jaye Howard, Lawrence Marsh,
Brandon Antwine, Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley


What they bring:


Omar Hunter had a nice spring and has lost
35 pounds since last season. Right now he is
listed as the starting nose tackle.
Terron Sanders (knee), Lawrence Marsh
(hips) and Brandon Antwine (knee) are all com-
ing off of injuries. All three say they are at 100
percent, but it will be interesting to see if they
are ready for the season opener. Defensive line
coach Dan McCarney called Antwine one of the
most talented players on the team.
Jaye Howard came to UF as a defensive end,
but he has since bulked up to over 300 pounds


and is now competing for the starting defensive
tackle spot. He is quicker than most at the posi-
tion because of his history as an end.
Highly-touted freshmen Sharrif Floyd and
Dominique Easley will need time to develop.
Our Pick: This race is still up for grabs, but
McCarney said Jaye Howard and Omar Hunter
would be the starters if the season started
today. The Gators like to keep their defensive
linemen fresh with a constant rotation of play-
ers, so look for all of them to get a chance to
play.


MIDDLE LINEBACKER
Contenders: Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins


What they bring:


By the eyeball test, Bostic is the prototypical replacement for Brandon Spikes.
His 6-foot-1, 238-pound frame makes him an imposingfigure, and he plays fast,
too. He played in 12 games as a freshman on special teams and as a backup,
leading his classmates with 18 tackles.
Jenkins is smaller by about an inch and 15 pounds, and his best attribute is
his speed. The two-way high school star has a knack for finding the action, and


with a quick burst of speed he looks like a wrecking ball once he picks out a
target.
Our Pick: Jenkins has a lot to offer, and as linebackers coach D.J. Durkin
said, he'll find a way onto the field. But Bostic seems like the better fit here
because of his size, so we're giving him the nod. Expect to see both play a lot,
though, as Durkin plans to rotate often.

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 E NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 3 Summer grads reminisce about time spent at UF By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Writer This summer, 731 undergraduate students shook hands, took photos and moved their tassels at the O'Connell Center. While 966 former undergraduate students received degrees, only 731 of them actually attended the graduation ceremonies on Aug. 7, said Mary Ann Hagler, who works in UF's registrar's office. ChrisJarrett, who graduated with a computer engineering degree, said he thinks all students should attend their graduation ceremonies because it allows families to celebrate with the students. He said it was worth waiting during the ceremony. In total, about 8,000 programs were printed for the 10 a.m. Student graduate students' cerLife emony and the 2 p.m. undergraduate students' ceremony, Hagler said. Some students at the ceremony decorated their caps with rhinestones, paint, images or other crafts. One message written in orange and blue said, "Thanks Mom 'n' Dad." Some caps had religious messages, and others praised the Gators' athletic achievements. Some students were awarded golden medallions to mark their status as Golden UF Tradition Keepers, which means they completed 40 recommended traditions in the UF Alumni Association's F Book. Each of the students' tassels were colored to indicate which college they were graduating from. Channing Mims, a 23-year-old family, youth and community sciences graduate, said she was motivated to finish her degree by her desire to earn her diploma and not fail. "I had the strength of my parents behind me," she said. "My parents cheered me on, telling me, 'You can finish this; you'll be one of a couple of people in your family with a college degree."' Although Mims, an only child, said she is one of the few people she knows who didn't come to UF for the sports, she said she remembers when the Gators won the men's basketball national championship in 2006. "I remember being in my dorm room and seeing everyone storm the streets," she said. She lived in a dorm for her first two years, and while she recommends others live in a dorm for their Alligator File Photo College is a marathon of hard work, stress, fun and new experiences. Graduation day is the finish line. first year, she said it's a good idea to move to an off-campus apartment. One of the biggest surprises at UF, she said, was the number of students. "It was a bit overwhelming seeing all the students there. Until you actually experience and see it, you don't really know." Her advice to freshmen: "Definitely join some of the organizations. I didn't do that, but I had a lot of friends that did and they really loved that." Mims is staying in Gainesville and working at the Alachua County Humane Society, but she said she would like to eventually go to graduate school. Jarrett's favorite memories at UF were at the football games. "Saturdays in the fall were the best time of year," he said. Jarrett, along with many of the graduates, arrived at UF in 2006, a year that UF won both the football and men's basketball national championships. The school has changed since 2006, he said. "I think the school's gotten more academic-oriented," he said. "Back then, it was more of a party school." Twenty-three undergraduate students were awarded their degree with highest honors, summa cum laude, Hagler said. The requirements for summa cum laude honors varies by college, but most require a research project and a GPA around 3.8. Fall graduation ceremonies will occur Dec. 17 and 18.

4, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION E MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Drinking, parking top list of gameday problems Tens of thousands of people come to town for football By COLIN SIMMONS Alligator Contributing Writer Come fall, when the Gators play in front of more than 90,000 screaming fans at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, there will be about 200 police officers patrolling the campus who won't be too concerned with the scoreboard. The officers, who come from the University Police Department, the Gainesville Police Department, the Alachua County Sheriff's Office and the Florida Highway Patrol, are focused on ensuring the safety of the tens of thousands of fans who come out to watch UF's storied football team. During any other time of the year, officers would not hesitate to arrest anyone on campus with an open container of alcohol, as mandated by city ordinance. But with the large influx of revelers and the carnival-like atmosphere that envelopes Gainesville on game day, the city's open-container ordinance is not UPD officers' main concern, said Capt. Jeff Holcomb, spokesman for UPD. "If you're over 21 and you're drinking at your parking spot, it's not our focus," Holcomb said. What UPD is concerned about enforcing, he said, are underage drinking violations and drinking environments that are out of control, such as kegs or excessive amounts of liquor on campus. If kegs or excessive amounts of alcohol are found, officers will ask that the liquor be removed. If violators don't comply, officers will give them a written arrest, he said. However, this is not a cityLile Alligator File Photo Football game days are always full of fun and excitement in Gainesville. This young fan got to meet a live alligator outside The Swamp Restaurant on University Avenue before the Gator's first game. wide policy. Once students cross University Avenue and leave campus, open container and underage drinking violations are strictly enforced by the Gainesville Police Department, he said. Those who are caught with an open container off campus risk getting a written arrest or worse, depending on the violator's demeanor and compliance with officers, Holcomb said. "They are very pro-arrest," he said, referring to GPD officers. It's also important for students on game days to remember to stow away valuables such as iPods, cell phones and other electronics, he said, or they may be stolen. "Parents call in every year and ask what the top five crimes on campus are," he said. "It's theft, theft, theft, theft and theft." Students also need to be aware of the changes in parking and driving policies around campus to accommodate the influx of traffic, he said. Gale Lemerand Drive, which runs north-south through the middle of campus, closes two hours before kickoff, and no cars are allowed to drive on Gale Lemerand between University Avenue and Stadium Road until the game ends. Additionally, parking around Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is on a first-come, first-served basis, and parking on the sidewalks or grass is prohibited. People who park on campus illegally risk getting their cars towed, according to the UF Athletic Association's webaite, gatorzone.com. Off-campus, tenets, landlords and business owners can apply for a permit with the city that allows them to sell parking spaces on their property during game weekends, the homecoming parade and Gator Growl. According to the City of Gainesville website, the yardparking business tax is an annual fee that went into effect last year. Landlords and business owners who want to sell parking spots on their properties are charged the tax, which ranges from $26.25 to $157.50, depending on the location of the property as well as the number of parking spots owners intend to sell. Jennifer Bush, who owns Jerry Bush Auto Repair with her father, Jerry, has been selling parking spots on the property for the last 15 years. She said she doesn't mind paying the tax because it prevents people from trying to sell parking spaces on property they don't own. On an average game day, Bush sells between 30 and 60 parking spots. An available bathroom in the front office of the auto repair shop, as well as a garage to safely keep cars overnight if the owners don't return, are added incentives for people to park on the lot. It's also a good spot to tailgate, she said. "We get some people from the other team and some from here, but they get along real well," she said. 76c'e Ste ONe4ICfaICt TIRED? STRESD? O\IERWHELMED?

6, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION E MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Freshman Fun Some friendly advice from the Alligator F is a big place, and as your unofficial welcoming committee, we're going to pass along a few tips to help you incoming freshman get accommodated a little quicker than we did. First off, tell that little voice inside your head to shut up so you can listen to our nickels worth of free advice. We know a lot of you are still high off getting 30 hours of Advanced Placement credit and think you're going to make it out of here in 3 years, but that's a horrible idea. Go ahead and take the whole 4 years and sign up for something fun like History of Rock and Roll. Maybe it'll be a tough sell to your parents, but trust us when we say loading your schedules down with math and science classes is a oneway ticket to dullsville. Make sure you never carry around a map, either. Unless you are looking for buried treasure, there is really no way to pull off looking cool while carting around a hastily-printed, black and white Google Maps representation of UF campus. Instead, just ask someone to point you in the right direction. It's a great way to meet new people and drop that freshman timidity. Just make sure to avoid asking anyone dressed as a zombie or Pentecostal zealot -those idiots are just dying for attention. Remember, never pay any of those people on Turlington Plaza any attention whatsoever. It may be tempting to tell them how wrong and homophobic they are, but they are stuck in their ways and there is nothing you can accomplish by yelling back at them, except encouragment. Also, learn how to cook something. Anything, really. We know you're probably used to having mom and dad do that for you, and the adjustment will take some time, but nothing is worse for you in the long run than getting accustomed to running over to Pita Pit or Pizza by the Slice for dinner at 1:30 in the morning. If you can fit in a trip to Publix every few days, you might just be able to spare yourself from gaining that dreaded "Freshman 15." Speaking of weight gain, you should probably try to avoid alcohol and drugs for as long as humanly possible. Not only are these substances the gateway to bad decisions, but having anything of the sort in your dorm room is a sure-fire way to crush your dreams of getting into law or medical school after you finish undergrad. Take it from experience, you don't want your first phone call home to be a tear-filled confession about getting your first strike. Working hard and staying out of trouble seems the best route for success, but you have no idea where you'll be four years from now, so be flexible to change. You might be unemployed in a horrible job market with no hope of doing what you want with your life, like everyone's been predicting for our generation. Or, you might be a beaming med student at one of the nation's top universities. Or, you might take a year off to relax, travel and see the world before figuring out your life. Anything is possible. So make sure to have some fun. There's no point in working so hard toward your future that you can't enjoy the present. We're not suggesting that you do out drinking the night before an exam, but we are saying to take the time to schedule in some downtime. Do all the things you want to do while a combination of your parents' money and Bright Futures scholarship is still footing the bill. al te independent forida Rachael Pino EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Drew Wilson OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

C ~ ~n 0T M TOTAUY Zu~swwav Take advantage of elcome to UF. You are now a student at the flagship academic institution of the state of Florida. With a University of Florida degree, you have endless career opportunities and a promising shot at some of the nation's top graduate programs. Prepare to settle in for four or five years. Gainesville is certainly no Las Vegas, but there are plenty of ways to entertain and be entertained. The peculiarities of the city are best discovered by haphazard means. Spend some time walking around campus, downtown and by the prairie. Bolen Bluff trail, just south of Payne's Prairie, is one of the best nature walks the city has to offer. A 20 minute walk through the forest spills out onto an indescribably serene plateau with an abundance of wildlife. For the music lover, Gainesville has countless concert halls, music venues and live-performance bar settings. All types of bands roll through Gainesville throughout the year, and the particularly savvy music enthusiast has a wide array of entertainment to choose from. One of my favorite features of Gainesville is its central location in the state. Within two hours, you can be in Tampa, Orlando or Jacksonville for a weekend getaway. An hour and a half drive east will bring the occasional traveler to St. Augustine, the perfect night trip for stargazing or beach camping. Campus life can be very rewarding, if one is ambitious and bold enough to throw themselves into involvement opportunities. For a new student, involvement can be intimidating, but well worth the muster of courage necessary to try something new. There is a club or organization for just about anytim nEGE nsv! time in Gainesville Bryan Griffin Ietters@alligator org thing. I believe UF hosts over 800 different clubs yearly. The Greek system is also a great way to experience thick camaraderie and make a solid group of dedicated friends. Student political organizations, like the College Republicans, the College Democrats or Student Government's Student Senate offer a chance to become familiarized with citizen activism, which is, in my opinion, an under-appreciated trait of the well-rounded individual. Finally, there are programs through Florida Blue Key and its partnerships that are wholly oriented toward aspiring new-student leaders, information about which can be found in Room 365 of the Reitz Union. Of course, as a Gator, we all get plenty of exposure to premiere academic sporting events. Game days in Gainesville are city-wide celebrations, and homecoming is an experience one will not easily forget. Also, don't forget to come out and celebrate the Gator Nation with all of your classmates and friends at this year's Gator Growl on Oct. 15. With so many things to look forward to about being a Gator and making the most of your time in Gainesville, there really won't be enough time to be bored or unhappy. Find the activity niche that fits with your personality, and use it to build yourself into the well-rounded adult that society will expect you to be upon graduation.

Guest column UF president: 'You elcome to the University of Florida and The Gator You should know right off the bat that you are exceptional in a number of ways, not the least of which is your academic track record. Consider these statistics: Nearly 28,000 people applied to UF this year. The roughly 6,400 students who will make up this fall's freshman class are expected to have an average GPA approaching 4.1 and an average SAT score of about 1900. With numbers like those, you could have chosen any number of schools. I'm glad you chose UF, and I think you'll be glad you did, too. Make no mistake, UF is a big place, but don't let that intimidate you. In fact, it's an advantage because it means you have more choices. Think of it like the iPhone: There's an are exceptional in Bernie Machen app for that. Spea king Out For starters, you've selected one of the most comprehensive universities in the country. With 100 undergraduate degree programs, 200 graduate degree programs and more than 30 combined degree programs, it's fair to say that if you want to study it, there's a good chance we offer it. If the idea of international travel appeals to you, UF has an extensive and growing study-abroad program with ties to universities in Europe, Asia and Africa and international centers in Beijing and Paris. Looking for a place to meet people? How about one of the 900-plus student organizations on campus?

For you Harry Potter fans, there's even Quidditch. But as anyone will tell you, the benefits of a college education go far beyond what you'll learn in the classroom. The bonds and relationships you build now will last a lifetime, and there's no better time to start creating them. Graduation seems light years away to you now, but it will be here before you know it. (I've seen a few graduations so I know.) When you finally have that hard-earned degree in hand, you'll be joining another very special group: UF alumni. Their ranks include governors and senators, athletes and astronauts, journalists and scientists -in other words, people who are making a real difference in the world.

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 ENEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 9 LOCAL77rs Cultural attractions worth a visit By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Writer As a college student in Gainesville, you'll likely discover that the nightlife is the main attraction. But that shouldn't stop you from hitting the town in the daytime and early evening, either. Gainesville's got cultural and historic landmarks worth visiting. The Hippodrome State Theatre in downtown Gainesville, commonly known as "The Hipp," hosts both plays and movies. The main auditorium, where the plays are held, seats 266 people and recently hosted two popular shows, "The Great American Trailer Park Musical" and "Shear Madness." The movie theater, which seats 80, hosts independent films that you won't find at mainstream cinemas. It will also re-run some indie films after their original runs in theaters expire. The building was built in 1911 and served as both a post office and a courthouse. In 1972, it was converted into a theater. The building, which features six large Corinthian columns, also contains one of the oldest manual elevators in the state. "It's a really neat old building," said Tony Farah, an employee at the theater. "The architecture alone adds to the theatrical expeThe Ham Museum of Art, located on Hull Road and Southwest 34th Street, is part of UF's Cultural Plaza. rience. And the actors are very devoted to their roles, so it makes each play a completely new experience from the last." The Thomas Center, located at 302 NE 6th Ave., was originally a home built for former Gainesvile mayor William Thomas in 1910. Thomas played a key role in securing the city as UF's home by donating about 500 acres to entice the state to choose Gainesville for the university. The center was converted into a hotel in 1928 and in 1972, the city planned to demolish it. A resistance campaign saved it and the City of Gainesville purchased the property. The 100 year-old building hosts piano recitals, weddings and art and history exhibits. "The butterfly museum is unlike anything I've ever seen before." Dan Deep Gainesville resident Although hanging at a museum may not seem like the most interesting activity, Gainesville is home to the state's official national history museum and one of the largest university museums in the Southeast. The Florida Museum of Natural History is a place that typically stands out not only because of its traveling exhibits, fossil collec\ (N n momas rieviK/ umgator stan The Hippodrome State Theatre in downtown Gainesville shows both plays and films. tions and skeletons, but because of the Butterfly Rainforest. In the Butterfly Rainforest, you can walk around in a giant screened room filled with plants that support up to 80 species of butterflies, according to the exhibit's website. "The butterfly museum is unlike anything I've ever seen before," said Dan Deep, a Gainesville resident who will be enrolling at UF this year. "Just the amount of butterflies in there was enough to make my head spin." There are also live butterfly releases on weekends between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Additionally, the museum sells butterfly-attracting plants on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The museum features 10 plants each week, along with K / at least one unannounced species. Proceeds benefit the exhibit. The other museum to check out is the Harn Museum of Art, which contains about 7,000 works of art. In 2009, the museum added a 26,000-square-foot wing dedicated specifically to Asian art. The museum also hosts events such as the Student Government-sponsored Museum Nights, which open the museum up from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. and features guest lecturers and guided tours. The Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is adjacent to the Harn in UF's Cultural Plaza. The center has played host to a variety of acts, from a touring Chinese drum group, to the legendary reggae group the Wailers, to comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld. > ,~=-A vi R A 1 h A(f JL_

10, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 GREEK LIFE Common perception of Greeks more myth than reality By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer The Delta Tau Chi Fraternity at Faber College is more fantasy than reality. The toga parties, elaborate hazing ceremonies and food fights do not accurately reflect what Greek life is really about. About 2,000 students will partake in recruitment for one of the four Greek councils this year, adding to the nearly 5,000 students who make up the Greek community at UF. Together, members of the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, the Multicultural Greek Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council account for about 15 percent of the UF student body population, according to Jack Causseaux, associate director of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs. Formal recruitment for the Panhellenic Council is fast approaching, and recruitment for the other three councils is not far behind. Students who are at all interested in joining a Greek chapter during their time at UF should start looking into gathering more information and rushing a sorority or fraternity, Causseaux said. "It's an experience a lot of people take advantage of," he said. The cost of joining a fraternity or sorority varies from chapter to chapter, although potential new members should understand that the cost is considerable. There are 63 Greek chapters at UF, according to the 2010 Guide to Florida Greeks on the Sorority and Fraternity Affairs website. Thirty-nine of the chapters have houses. Greek chapters participate in a number of community events every year, including Gator Growl and Homecoming, Greek Week, Dance Marathon, the National PanHellenic Council Stepshow and the Multicultural Greek Council Field Day.Together, the Greek councils raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity every year, according to the Guide to the Greeks. The mentality that fraternities and sororities are all about boozing and partying all the time is a false one, Causseaux said. "These are values-based organizations," he said. "People are looking to better themselves." The UF Greek community is dedicated to scholarship, leadership, service and community, he said. Joining a Greek chapter helps students become more actively involved in the campus community, he said. Fraternities and sororities are subject to rules and regulations just like every other student organization on campus, he said. One set of rules, for example, deals especially with hazing. The UF anti-hazing policy is comparable to those of other universities, he said.

UF policy mandates that the students in each Greek chapter maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.85, but some chapters have even higher standards for their members. Each chapter is either required to perform two service projects and one philanthropy, or chapters can opt to accomplish four service projects each semester. Anyone who rushes a chapter expecting to party all the time is in for a rude awakening, Causseaux said. "There's much more expected of you than just coming out to party," he said. A lot of people scoff at the idea of joining a fraternity or sorority because they get the wrong idea from the media, he said. But they are not all about wild parties, one-night stands and secret initiation rites. "It's fun to make fun of, but what you see on TV and in the movies is not accurate," he said. Joining a fraternity or a sorority can provide a student with a number of opportunities, he said. A Greek chapter provides networking opportunities, the chance to meet new people outside of the residence halls, leadership experience and an atmosphere of fellowship that many people cherish after college. "I believe in fraternities and sororities and I believe they can help students become better students," Causseaux said.

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 ENEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 11 Renovated SW Rec highlights UF recreation offerings By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Writer After one year and $16.3 million worth of construction and renovation, the Southwest Recreation Center is scheduled to reopen on Wednesday. The center, which has been under construction since Aug. 25, is now 40,000 square feet larger than it was. Much of the preexisting space was also renovated, according to the UF RecSports website. The project did not go over budget, and it met its planned opening date, according to David Bowles, director of RecSports. On Aug. 24, RecSports is hosting the 2010 RecSports Extravaganza, which will exhibit UF's many sports clubs, the massage therapy program, group lessons and what's new at Southwest Rec. The renovations added 15,000 square feet for cardio equipment, a .9-mile track, a new activity room to expand the group fitness program, a training center and a social lounge, Bowles UF's Southwest Recreation Center underwent an expansion over the last year. said. The center also renovated the locker rooms and added an office complex to make it easier for students to find all the organization's services. The added training center will provide space for fitness assessment, personal training, massage therapy and athletic training, while the social lounge will have big-screen TVs and couches. Its purpose, Bowles said, is to provide an area for students to "kick back and relax." The renovations were paid for with a fund created by a $2.44-per-credit fee on students. The fund is used to maintain, renovate and expand RecSports facilities, the Reitz Union, the O'Connell Center and the Student Health Care Center. During the week, the center opens at 7 a.m. and stays open until 1 a.m. On Gator Nights, which start every Friday night and last until early Saturday morning, it stays open until 2 a.m., according to the RecSports website. On the weekends, the center is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Southwest Recreation Center and the Student Recreation and Fitness Center offer group classes. The schedules for the classes can be viewed online at recsports.ufl.edu. UF also owns Lake Wauburg, a recreational lake about eight and a half miles south of campus where students can check out canoes, mountain bikes, discs, kayaks and paddle boats with a Gator 1 Card. Certification is needed to check out sailboats, jet skis and wakeboards. Smaller on-campus athletic facilities include the Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex, located beside Broward Hall, and the Student Recreation and Fitness Center, located on the east side of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Aside from personal training, most services offered at RecSports facilities are free to students with Gator 1 Cards.

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 ENEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 13 LOCAL No car, no problem: alternative transportation plentiful By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Writer You're stuck on campus late at night. You've got no car and no ride home. You're armed with only your Gator 1 Card and your cell phone. Fortunately, you've got some options. For UF students who lack transportation, or are too inebriated to use their own, Gainesville offers several ways to get around. RTS, Gainesville's bus system, has three special routes, called Later Gator routes, that run from 8:30 p.m. until about 3 a.m. Later Gator began as a partnership between UF and RTS to help reduce the number of students drinking and driving, according to Chip Skinner, marketing supervisor for RTS. "Instead of driving, they can get on the bus and they don't have to worry," he said. "They can get home safely. It is by far the safest mode of transportation if they are going to be going downtown." The rates are the same as they are during normal hours, meaning that rides are free for those who flash their Gator 1 cards. The three routes, A, B and C, run from the Rosa Parks Downtown Station to UF campus, southwest Gainesville and the Oaks Mall, respectively. The routes are designed to hit most major student apartment complexes in Gainesville. Route A will not run Monday or Tuesday nights, however. Skinner said that the number of people who used the route was too low to justify keeping it open on those two nights. If the thought of riding a public bus isn't your cup of tea, there is another free service that is coming to Gainesville around Aug. 15. GOTCHA, which stands for "Green Operated Transit Carrying Humanity Around," is the newest player in the public transportation arena. The GOTCHA cars, which are custom-built electric vehicles, will essentially serve as free taxis for people in Gainesville from 7:30 a.m. to noon., and then pick back up in the evening until 3 a.m., though GOTCHA president, Sean Flood, says the hours are subject to change depending on demand. In order to get a GOTCHA car, you can either call its dispatch center or hail one down like a taxi. The cars are paid for by advertisements, and the drivers work on tips. The six-seat cars are also outfitted with iPod docks and flat-screen TVs to keep its passengers entertained along the ride. "I hope they'll wonder how they got around before we were there," Flood said. Another option for students on campus is SNAP, the UF Police Department's escort service. SNAP stands for Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol. If a student calls 352-392-SNAP between the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 3 a.m., he or she can be picked up and dropped off just about anywhere they need to go on campus. "It's a great alternative to walking alone at night," said Officer Pablo Dejesus, the SNAP coordinator. SNAP escorts cannot take anyone to nonuniversity-owned property, he said. The reason for this is so UPD can better respond to any situations that may arise. Though it is a UPD service, it is almost entirely student-run. Dejesus is the only non-student employee of SNAP, and the project is funded in-part by Student Government. Dejesus advised those who are too drunk to drive and find themselves in search of transportation to ride the bus, call a taxi or a designated driver instead of calling SNAP. He said the service's primary objective is not to provide transport for intoxicated students because they may disturb others in the van. The driver of the van has the choice to either take or leave drunk passengers and could possibly call the police if they feel it would be necessary. "SNAP's primary goal is safety first and Students board an RTS bus at The Hub on the UF campus.

For those who don't have cars but may need one in certain circumstances, the Zipcar program may be helpful. Zipcar is a third-party company that rents cars to students either by the hour or by the day. These rental cars also have their own reserved parking spaces in campus parking lots. Before you can rent from Zipcar, you must apply for membership. Zipcar membership applicants must be at least 18 years old and have a good driving record to be approved. Ron Fuller, assistant director of UF's Transportation and Parking Services, said that they can be very strict about "moving violations," or speeding and red-light running. "Not just anyone can rent," he said. "You have to have a really good driving history." Zipcar's rates are $8 an hour and $66 per day on weekdays, and $9 an hour and $72 per day on weekends.

14, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Students have options when buying books By KAT BEIN Alligator Writer Textbooks. They're expensive, and buying them can be a budget-busting, heartbreaking experience. But luckily, students in Gainesville have lots of options for getting the books they need for class. The most obvious choice, and the most convenient for those living near the university, is to take advantage of the on-campus UF Bookstore, located in the Reitz Union. Off campus, there are plenty of otherbookstores tobrowse through. Some of the major stores include Thomas Plevik/ Alligator Staff Textbooks line the shelves behind the counter at the Florida Bookstore on West University Avenue. Orange and Blue Textbooks (OBT), with two locations near campus, and the Florida Bookstore, with three locations around town -two on West University Avenue and one on Southwest 34th Street. The major bookstores in town, including the UF Bookstore, recently started textbook rental programs that allow students who don't want to permanently keep their books to save money. Books aren't usually due until the last day of exams or the day following, depending on store policy. Matt Stevens, floor manager for OBT, said renting is a good option for students because, at his location, books are rented for half the price of new books. "It works kind of like a library card does," he said. Stevens said minimal highlighting and writing is allowed in texts. However, if a book is returned with too much damage, students will be charged the remaining 50 percent of the book cost. He said rentals are non-deferrable, and not all the books they sell are up for rent, including course packets. They do have a wide selection, though, and most largeclass texts are offered. Buybacks for the major stores are open year-round, although students shouldn't expect all their books to be bought or to receive even half of the original price. Some students choose to buy non-textbooks, like required literature or history books, at local stores like Book Lover's Vegetarian Caf6 on Northwest 13th Street. Others use national chains like Barnes and Noble. And, of course, a growing trend among students is simply to forgo textbook stores and buy books online. There are plenty of online options, too, such as amazon. com, craigslist.com, ebay.com and gainesville4sale.com. Ana Silva, a 21-year-old anthropology major, said she buys most, if not all, of her textbooks online using a website called bigwords.com. She said it acts like a search engine to find customers the best deals from many different online stores. Silva said she thinks buying online is definitely the most affordable option for students. "The advantage is definitely the price," she said. "You can find some textbooks, I'm not even kidding, for $5 .and the quality is pretty much the same as buying used." She said the only disadvantage is waiting for the texts to arrive, especially if you wait until the end of the drop/add period to order them. Silva said she keeps some of her books, but the ones she doesn't want she either sells to local stores or uses bigwords.com to find the highest bidder. Silva also added that textbooks can also be rented online.

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 15 Bad high-school habits can make transition harder By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Writer Freshmen often face difficulties when transitioning from high school to college. According to Martin Simpson, director of the Reading and Writing Center at UF, the biggest problem is usually procrastination. It can be an "academic killer," he said. The problem stems from the simple fact that college is harder than high school, he said. Students may have been able to get by with procrastinating in high school, so they don't think they need to fix the problem. "What used to work doesn't work anymore," he said. "Writing the paper the night before it's due-maybe you got away with that in high school, but not here." Students need daily checklists, and they need to stay on top of their homework to be successful, Simpson said. Part of the problem is the structural difference between high school and college. Most public high schools have students in school for more than six hours every day, amounting to more than 30 hours a week of instruction. In college, full-time students might have 15 hours of lectures each week for 15 credit hours. They are expected to study 30 hours a week outside class, Simpson said. Channing Mims, who graduated Aug. 8 with a degree in family, youth and community sciences, said she liked the added freedom that came with coming to college. In high school, it's like "having a teacher talk at you," which is ineffective, she said. "In college, you kind of work at your own pace. You can dabble in a lot of subjects." Freshman, first-semester transfers and first-year graduate students Student make up about 80 percent of Life the people who use the Reading and Writing Center's tutoring services, Simpson said. "In college, you can go all semester long without attending class," he said. "There isn't going to be a truancy cop out there." Students might not realize they're in academic trouble until after their first few exams and it might take getting a "James Bond 007-type GPA" for students to realize they're in trouble, he said. "If you have a really lousy first semester, it takes a few semesters to get back to where you want to be," he said. Note-taking is also a big challenge for freshmen, he said. In high school, students can usually get by with weak note-taking skills. But in college, it's harder to do well without good notes. The Reading and Writing Center's website has videos with advice for note-taking, reading speed, memory, time management and test-taking. Students need to set up external motivations, he said. Sometimes, scheduling weekly meetings to work on study skills can be enough. The Teaching Center lets students sign up for weekly tutoring sessions that last 50 minutes. "We can give you external support when you need it," Simpson said. "Some people can pull it off with internal reinforcement of shame, guilt or wanting that grade." The most important thing is that students need to learn from their problems as early as possible, he said. "It's one of those old sayings, you only learn through pain. The sooner you deal with the problem, the less serious it'll be," he said. ME1%144Ii 1 [ttef V.

16, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Gainesville area offers plenty of ways to enjoy nature 0 SPRINGS, RIVERS, LAKES AND STATE PARKS ARE ALL WITHIN DRIVING DISTANCE. By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Writer In the fall, Gainesville is a hustling, bustling place. Cars line the urbane streets of University Avenue. Neon lights shine through the night in the downtown district. But surrounding the university and semi-metropolitan areas of the city is some of the most beautiful natural scenery in north Florida. One nearby place to go if you're in search of nature is Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park, which is home to a 120-foot deep sinkhole and small rain forest, according to the Florida State Parks website. Visitors can travel down into the sinkhole using the park's boardwalk system. Going back up the plethora of wooden steps from the bottom is also a way to work out. "People that are going to climb mountains go train there," said Rachel Ahrens, a 19-year-old student at Santa Fe College. "I wanted to die after running all the stairs." One of Gainesville's main natural attractions is Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. The park spans about 21,000 acres and is a National Natural Landmark, according to the Florida State Parks website. It is home to an abundance of wildlife, including bald eagles, horses, hawks, sandhill cranes, alligators, snakes, bison, otters, deer ET A'11E AD ""N Advertise in the country's largest college newspaper.

In the prairie, students can hike the La Chua Trail or do some horseback riding down the Chacala Trail. Camping is also an option. On the south side of Paynes Prairie is Lake Wauburg, a recreational area where students can canoe and fish for bass, bream and speckled perch. Students can bring other boats onto the water for water skiing, wake boarding and sailing. However, gas-powered motors are not allowed on the lake. At the lake, there is also a 55-foot rock-climbing wall with 19 different routes for beginner and advanced climbers, according to the Department of Recreational Sports website. Entrance to the lake is free with a Gator 1 Card. The park is closed Mondays. Another lake that is closer to campus has become a natural attraction as well. Lake Alice has become a popular place for students to visit, as the lake and surrounding area is home to alligators, turtles, wading birds and bats. The lake is also surrounded by a number of nature trails. If you're in search of water and are able to travel a bit, the towns surrounding Gainesville also have some worthwhile places to visit. ianmas rIeVIK/ AiigalOr biaT Horses roam Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park on Aug. 10, 2010.

The main attraction at the river is tubing. Depending on which entrance you choose to start from, you can drift along the river for three-anda-half hours, an hour and a half or 45 minutes, according to Ichetuckneeriver.com. Wildlife is also visible while riding along the river, which remains a constant 72 degrees year-round. White-tailed deer, raccoons, wild turkeys, wood ducks and great blue herons are frequent visitors to the river's banks. Also in the High Springs area are the things the town is named for the springs. Most students say that Ginnie Springs, Poe Springs and Blue Springs as the most popular. At Ginnie Springs, you can snorkel and swim. If you've got the wallet for it, scuba diving is an option. "The springs are a very chill place," said Lindsey Buz, a student at Santa Fe College. "It's a very relaxing place where you can spend quality time with your friends. It's a great place to go if you want to go camping or fishing or barbecuing." Camping is also permitted, and party people will be thrilled to know alcohol is permitted, though not without limitations. No glass bottles are allowed, and you must be given written approval from the park in order to bring a keg with you on your trip. The nearby Santa Fe River also has tubing, kayaking and canoeing.

18, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 ON CAMPUS Parking induces migraines for student commuters By ALEXAN DER KLAUSN ER there are only 271 available spaces in Alligator Writer the garage. When seasoned UF students think of parking on campus, words like "nightmare," "horrendous" and "atrocious" cascade out of their mouths, alongside other words that cannot be printed here. With nearly 50,000 students, 17,000 faculty and staff and 24,000 parking spaces, it's easy to see why parking is such a struggle. In an effort to control the chaos, UF has set up a strictly enforced parking policy involving color-coded decals and fines. "We've got to regulate it, or it's a mad house," said Ron Fuller, assistant director of Parking and Transportation at UT. Though some of the most commonly seen and desired parking lots require orange decals, students may be disappointed to find that those decals are only available to faculty. Instead, students living on campus can buy red decals, students living off campus can buy Park & Ride decals, students living in family housing villages can park in brown lots and disabled students can park in any lot on campus. All of these decals cost $67 a semester. Students who want to park their scooters and motorcycles in designated lots on campus can buy a cheaper decal for $48 a semester. Some students without decals choose to park in the UF Bookstore and Visitor Welcome Center parking garage near the Reitz Union. There, the spaces are divided up into three categories. There are 45-minute parking spaces, 2-hour spaces, and all-day spaces. They cost $1, $3 and $5, respectively. The only problem with this is that Students who live off campus in areas that have "Neighborhood Parking Decal Required" signs are able to buy neighborhood decals from the city, as opposed to the university. Sept. 11 is the deadline to buy neighborhood decals. "Everyone has to have a decal or permit to park on campus," Fuller said. "There just isn't any free parking anymore." Those who break the rules and park without paying often end up paying more in fines than if they had purchased the appropriate decals in the first place. "I can guarantee you a parking space every single day, but you know where it is? Not where you want to be." Ron Fuller assistant director of Parking and Transportation at UF The fines range anywhere from the relatively inexpensive, like the $15 for overstaying your welcome at a metered space, to the colossally expensive $1,200-plus you would pay for being caught using a stolen gated-lot decal. UF pharmacy student Andy Hendrickson has his share of horror stories. "I've given UF so much of my money because of parking tickets," he said. "I've pretty much bought an entire semester's worth of classes in tickets." Hendrickson said he once parked his car with his tires sitting on the white line. He found a $30 ticket for double parking placed on his windshield. In another incident, he was ticketed for backing into a space instead of parking facing forward, which cost him the same amount. In total, he said he has been ticketed at least 12 times. In the event that you do receive a parking ticket, UF has a system where tickets can be paid online through your account with the university. Also, if you're feeling a bit cheated on a particular ticket, UF also has set up a system where students can appeal tickets online. "Parking is not easy on campus," Fuller said. "It's not easy for [parking staff]. Most of the time I just ride my bike." The university has encouraged that students don't bring their cars to school in an attempt to lighten the parking load on campus. Your Gator 1 Card, for instance, will allow you to get free rides on RTS buses around Gainesville. To promote the use of bikes on campus, UF student government pays for a free bike repair service station next to the Reitz Union. There is good news for those worried that they'll never be able to get a spot on campus, though. All parking restrictions are generally lifted on campus at 4:30 p.m. Some lots lift parking at other times, such as the lot across from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, which lifts its restrictions at 3:30, and the lot next to Criser Hall, which opens up at 5:30. Before then, however, getting a decent parking space is migraineinducing. "I can guarantee you a parking space every single day," Fuller said. "But you know where it is? Not where you want to be."

22, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 ELECTIONS Candidates, student groups gear up for primaries By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Writer Florida residents will be voting in statewide primaries Aug. 24. The general elections are Nov. 2. While the UF College Democrats organization does not endorse candidates for the primary elections, club president Kristin Klein said she encourages everyone to vote. "Voting is one of the easiest direct forms of political action," she said. Klein, an economics and political science senior, said the UF College Democrats will have a voter registration drive this semester. The deadline for Floridians to register to vote for the primary election passed on July 26, but the deadline for the general election is Oct. 4. Both Klein and Carly Wilson, president of the UF College Republicans, said it's important for freshmen to register in Gainesville. Klein added that it's not too late for students to change their residence for voter registration. Students can change their residence to Gainesville up to the day they vote, she said. On Aug. 8, Kendrick Meek, one of four candidates running for the Democratic nomination for Florida's U.S. Senate race, visited Gainesville in an effort to raise support. During his stop at the Alachua County Education Association, Meek talked about promoting business in Florida, universal health care, environmentally friendly legislation and taking care of servicemen Meek and women who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. He called his primary battle with Jeff Greene, a businessman who moved to Florida two years ago, a "dress rehearsal" for the general election. "There are political battles that I've read about and wished I was a part of, and I'm blessed and honored to be a part of this one," Meek said. In an interview, Meek said he would try to earmark research dollars for Florida universities because it helps bring jobs and create economic opportunities. Meek views the general election, which will likely be against Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and former Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives Marco Rubio, as a race against two Republicans, even though Crist registered as an independent. Of the main candidates for U.S. Senate and Florida governor, two are UF alumni. Rubio attended Santa Fe Community College and graduated from UF in 1993. Gubernatorial hopeful Bill McCollum earned both his bachelor's and law degrees at UF. The College Democrats' first meeting of the school year will be Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. at Pugh Hall, Room 120, Klein said. The College Republicans' first meeting will be Aug. 26 at 6 p.m. in the Reitz Union, Room 374. The Students for the Preservation of Freedom, a libertarian group not associated with either party, has not announced the time of its first fall meeting, according to the group's secretary, William Tew.

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 23 Campus dining makes gaining Freshman 15 easy 0 STUDENTS CAN BUY MEAL PLANS OR PAY AS THEY EAT. By KAT BEIN Alligator Writer Studying can take a lot out of a student, and no one likes to work on an empty stomach. Thankfully, there are plenty of dining options for all palates on campus, and lots of payment options, too. On-campus eating is provided by Gator Dining Services, which oversees more than 40 locations, including national brands like Subway, Moe's Southwest Grill, Pollo Tropical, Chick-fil-A and many others. The university's primary eating facility is the Reitz Union, which houses 12 restaurants. There are also two dining centers on campus: the Fresh Food Company at Broward Hall, and Gator Corner Dining Center, where students can enjoy a changing menu of home-style cooked meals and buffets. Most dining options are closed over breaks, except for a few places at the Hub or Reitz Union. Otherwise, hours of operation for each restaurant can be found online at gatordining.com. Students may choose to buy food conventionally, or, if they plan to eat on campus often, they can choose from various meal plans, all of which work off the magnetic strip of students' Gator 1 Cards, according to the website. Upon purchasing meal plans, accounts are automatically activated and ready for use, according to the website. Students living on campus may want to purchase an OpenAccess Meal Plan through the university, which could save them some money. Under the plan, students can choose either 5-day or 7-day access, and don't need to worry about counting meals. Gator Dining officials suggest that off-campus students purchase commuter meal plans, which offer weekly roll-over meal limits and discounted menu prices. Students also have the option of using a Declining Balance Account, which is a pre-paid system with no minimum balance or starting fees. It is valid at all oncampus restaurants. Vegetarians and vegans are in luck, too. UF's dining services have been voted in the Top 10 Best Vegetarian-Friendly Colleges in the U.S. by PETA. Nina Zagvazdina, a graduate student in geography, said she became a vegetarian when she first came to UF about three years ago. She hasn't had any trouble finding things to eat on campus. "When I was a freshman I had a meal plan," she Local said. "Every day for News lunch and dinner there was something there .whether it was amazing or not was another thing." Zagvazdina said she usually brings her food with her, but if she buys food on campus, she usually eats at Subway or Moe's, which both offer vegetarian menu options. She also frequently eats Krishna lunches, which have been served daily since 1971 on the Plaza of the Americas from around 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The vegetarian meals are served for a $4 donation, or voucher cards can be purchased, $30 for a 10-meal card and $20 for a 6-meal card, according to the Krishna website. For more information about meal plans and on-campus eatery options, visit Gator Dining's website or call their office at 352392-2491.

theAvenue monday, august 16, 2010 homeless hearts Some homeless people are addicts, conformists, veterans, ex-convicts, family members, professionals, workers who have lost their jobs and wandering souls. They say they will never walk the roads alone, that they will always have one another. And they will always relate because in life anyone can have the same fate. page 25 -_ Tips to acclimate yourself properly by not pissing off the locals ep, it's that time of year again. Time for the peace to end. Time for the streets to crowd. Time for the influx of out-of-towners coming to steal our land, pillage our town and take our women. OK, maybe not. But there's still a buttload of you coming for fall semester. But before you get too comfy in this town, remember that there were people here before you. People who can't stand some of the things you do. You refer to us affectionately as Alachua County Residents or ACRs. Growing up in Gainesville and now goingto school here, I've been on both sides of the fence. I used to hate everything about the invading college kids. Hell, I wasn't even allowed to drive south of Eighth Avenue on Friday nights because my parents were afraid I'd get plowed into by some drunk sophomore on a moped. Now that I'm older, I see it from a different angle. Yes, I still think most of you are dummies, and I realize I am, too. But, at least I know how to be considerate of my fellow Gainesvillian. Now, don't get the idea that we don't want you here. Some of you are all right. And let's face it, you're the ones who keep our businesses open. The bars would be SOL without you. But there are a few things you could do to keep me from wanting to hit every BMW with Miami-Dade tags I see cruising down University Avenue. Consider this your ACRs guide to Gainesville: 1. This isn't Jersey, so don't drive like it. I realize that most of you comefrom some larger city and you're used to driving like major a-holes, but there's no reason to show me your manicured middle finger as you zoom past me for going30 in a 30. It's a small town and chances are you're within three minutes of wherever you're going. I know I'm sounding very dad-like here, but this isn't a race. I should also add thatyou shouldn't Alex Orlando Columnist park your stupid little Vespa knock-off that your landlord gave you in a car-sized parking spot. Not only is it a surefire way to be spotted as someone who's notfrom here, it makes us ACRs want to get out of our trucks and kick your scooter over. So, seriously, stop it. 2. Explore the town. It's a lot cooler than whatever you have planned this weekend. You might not have noticed, butthis place is friggin' sexy as far as wildlife goes. So, instead of slamming down Four Locos this weekend at a frat party on your first weekend back, go out and look at the stars over Paynes Prairie, go to the springs or check out the deer over at Devil's Millhopper. There's tons of things to do here. And chances are, this wildlife won't try to give you a tour of the frat house that's sure to end in an awkward, regrettable scooter ride home the next morning. 3. Don't call us ACRs. Only we can call each other ACRs. 4. Don't be a nightcrawler. I see this all the time. It's 2 a.m., the clubs just let out and you're all running around like those Nerf-gunarmed freshmen who play Humans vs. Zombies, only you're belligerent drunks. It's every weekend. Cop cars flare their lights, kids scream for attention and the sidewalks reek of beer and puke. It's like a scene from "I Am Legend." This isn't whatever club scene you have back home. You don't look cool wearingyour bright-colored clothes or your sunglasses at night as you stagger out of Grog House still fist pumping. You just look lost. So keep your Miami out of my Gainesville. For reference, we ACRs don't do that. We're at a friend's house, wearing jorts, listening to country music and drinking cheap beer, just like you think we are. 5. Befriend an ACR You probablythink none of us actually go to college, but I'm living proof that we do. We are a peaceful people who only want to be left alone and to be less inconvenienced by people who act like hooligans. But, if you come across a creature from here, be nice. If we think you're cool enough, we might show you some neat things about the town, show you our favorite swimming hole on the river or hand you a glass of sweet tea. I know I've been a royal jerk in this column, but some of you had it coming. So, take these things into account when you're out and about this school year. You'll probably run across us duringour favorite activity: goin' to Gaterrr fuhtball games! And you can guarandamn-tee we'll be there. So if you see one of us, speak slow and act like you understand. We'll get alongjust fine. CL 0 LL EDITOR'S WORD Dear Readers, If you're new in town or just returning from your summer respite, I'd like to personally welcome you to our own version of collegiate paradise. Even though we're a relatively small town, there are a ton of things to see and do (and drink). In this issue, you can find places to eat, get coffee or party your ass off in true Gainesville/Gator fashion. We have bars and nightspots on every corner. We have a ton of bike shops and hookah spots and restaurants too. I'm not going to dwell on it, but there are also a significant number of the downtrodden and destitute in our town and it can't hurt to at least be familiar with the issue. Also, there are a wide array of volunteering opportunites for those of you who want to give back to the community. Finally, I know you're going to drink, but at least take advantage of the transportation options in town so you don't get behind the wheel. That's just stupid. -JON SILMAN avenue editor

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 25 New students, meet your new neighbors -the homeless By KAT BEIN avenue writer Living in Gainesville, there's something you're going to encounter on the streets that you should be ready for. No, I'm not talking about the ravenous, beer-bloated Gator fans or drunken sorority girls crying on the side of the road (although you'll meet those, too). I'm talking about the overwhelming and aggressively sponging homeless population. When I moved here in 2008, I was surprised by the sheer amount of them, as well as the ease with which they approach passersby. Although Gainesville was recently named one of the meanest cities by the National Coalition for the Homeless, it doesn't stop street dwellers of all kinds from making it one of their favorite stomping grounds. We've got all kinds here: young, traveling crust kids who choose to be homeless; slightly demented but harmless crazies who can't stop running; and of course, crackheads without pants. And they've all got a story. Maybe they just got out of the hospital and need money for medicine, maybe their family was killed by ninjas and they need money for karate lessons, or maybe their "grandmamma always told me just ask for 75 cents." It's easy at first to think you should give a little somethingafter all, do unto others. But after a while, it becomes obvious that there are just too many to have sympathy for them all, and sometimes you have to think back to those DARE days as a kid and just say no. Of course, howyou choose to dole out your funds is a personal choice. Many feel their money should be earned, either by having their car cleaned or listening to a pan handler play guitar. For some people, it's enough if they're enticed to laugh. Teaamont Hadez Cuningham goes for humor. He's gained quite a reputation in town and online for his "ninjas killed my family" sign. Nury Dominguez, a 20-year-old He said he's been using that line for Santa Fe business major, disagrees. the past 15 years and it definitely She said she's met Cuningham behelps. "I get enough to get weed, the herbal cigarettes I smoke and some food," Cuningham said. "I don't drink and luckily I don't pay child support." Cuningham said he just came back to Gainesville a couple weeks ago, this being his fourth visit. "It used to be a lot cooler," he said. "When I first came here, drug dealers were everywhere and they didn't mind meeting new people." Still, Cuningham said he loves being here and thinks Gainesville has a great atmosphere for people like him. He doesn't think people giving handouts should care who they give it to or what they use it for. "Don't assume," he said. "Even if you don't think you're helping, you are. Maybe they [spend your money on drinks] because they have a lot of things they'd like to forget." fore, and she didn't think his act was very funny. In fact, she's over the homeless. "I feel like especially they come to me and have conversations with me," she said. "I just don't have anything for them. I used to be nice, but it got to the point that it was really annoying." She's not alone. "Most of them are oxygen thieves, they just sucking up someone else's air," said Eugene Primus, who doesn't consider himself homeless because he often stays with a friend. Primus is often found sleeping in front of American Apparel, his "special spot," and is familiar to many club-goers who have seen the man cleaning up after their mess. Eugene has been in Gainesville for 22 years and helps set up and clean various clubs around downtown each night of the week. He cleans cars by day, because he said he was raised to believe you should work for what you get. "A lot of people in this town have no get up and go, they just want handouts," he said. "I work for my s--so people can't say I owe them nothing." Max Tipping, the executive director of the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, said if you want to help, handouts are OK, but if you want to make a bigger donation, it's betterto come to him and his organization, and it's needed. He said the last count in January put the homeless population at 1,292 people, 242 of those are children under 18. He said many of the groups and organizations they work with desperately need volunteers. Anyone interested in making a donation or volunteering his or he time is asked to contact Tipping directly, at 352-378-0460.

26, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Construction on Main Street bad for Backstage business By DANIEL ELSESSER avenue contributing writer The Backstage Lounge just had its biggest crowd in months. Almost 60 people attended the rock lounge and bar to celebrate its fourth year under the current ownership Sunday. The crowd of 60 was once expected for a slow Tuesday or Wednesday, but since the construction on South Main Street decreased drive-by traffic, the Backstage Lounge and other businesses on South Main Street have been suffering. In the barroom adjacent to the rock lounge area, five people sattalkingquietly, including the owner of the Backstage Lounge, Rick Tingle. Despite his imposing 6-foot-7-inch build, Tingle is as cordial and engaging as the female bartender, Marty Lewis, who happens to be Tingle's "better half." Tingle said he has worked at the Lounge in some capacity since it was called Eddie C's. After he bought itfour years ago, he changed the name to the Backstage Lounge to give patrons a more comfortablefeel, butpromised the man who sold him the place that he would continue to house live music for the next 20 years. Tingle said that while live bands will occasionally draw a crowd for the Backstage Lounge, it has suffered along with many other businesses on South Main Street since construction from the 900 block on North Main Street to Depot Avenue began in January. Tingle said that traffic has dropped off significantly after the construction work that is replacing sewer pipes and removing contaminated soil created detours from University Avenue to South Main Street. Tingle said the lack of drive-by customers has hurtthe Backstage Lounge financially. "I'm paying rent for property that's supposed to have 3,000 cars drive by it every day," Tinge said. "I'm getting about four." Tingle said the day before the Backstage Lounge received a legal maximum capacity requirement, Travis Meeks of the band Days of the New performed, and 650 people jammed into the Lounge to watch him. Lewis stood still and held her arms tightly to her sides to demonstrate the freedom of movement that each person had that night. The next day, the Backstage Lounge was given a maximum capacity of 300 people. At a meeting with city officials in April, Tinge proposed that to compensate for lost business, the city should give the Backstage Lounge up to four outdoor permits per month, which would normally cost $250 each. Tingle said he has heard no response from the city or the Florida Department of Transportation. "If they were serious they could finish this in six or seven months," Tingle said. "It's not like they're not trying. I just feel like they don't care." Gina Hawkins, the spokeswoman for the City of Gainesville Public Works Department, said working two blocks at a time is more efficient than workingon the entire area at once because Thomas Plevik/Alligator Staff Since construction began on the intersection of South Main Street and Depot Road, businesses south of Depot Road, such as Backstage Lounge, have been suffering. doing the whole project at once would mean longer detours and would block more traffic crossing Main Street. "In orderto manage the flow of traffic to businesses on Main Street, we have found this design to be our most efficient option," Hawkins said. Shortly after 1 a.m., Tingle and Lewis left the bar for their home. At home, they have a tomato garden that they made almost every meal from during an eight-month period when profits from the Lounge were lower than normal. "I'm living week to week," Tingle said. "In two weeks I might be here, but if I can't pay the $2,300 for my electric bill, I might have to close my doors. That's when you'll see me out there chained to the construction equipment."

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 0 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 27 Fall season brings new hope for tried and true franchises Madden, Metroid and Halo to be released soon By JOSH ISOM avenue contributing writer Zombies, Spartans and 22 men getting sweaty together: It must be the beginning of gaming season. As if you needed more reasons to shirk off homework this semester, here are the heavy hitting games coming out in August and September: "Madden NFL 2011" -Aug. 10 (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, PSP, iPhone) Let's face the facts: This game is going to sell millions of copies. It's the only NFL-licensed football game in town, and it's being released on nearly every system available. The previous installment sold nearly two million copies in its first month, according to the NPD's August 2009 report. "Madden" brings in the money, and the series shows no signs of stopping. This year's installment in the annual franchise introduces the GameFlow playcalling mechanic. Essentially, GameFlow is an Al system that automatically handles both offensive and defensive playcalling to streamline the experience, according to IGN. Of course, the option to manually choose a play is still included, but for those of us without a lick of playcalling know-how, GameFlow sounds like a great way for a wider audience to enjoy the game. "Metroid: Other M" -Aug. 31 (Wii) Besides jiggling breast physics -yes, you read that correctly -developer Team Ninja is well-known for their brutally difficult, side-scrolling "Ninja Gaiden" series from the NES era. Mixing together a well-known franchise like "Metroid" with the 2D experience of Team Ninja sounds intriguing, and when you throw in the first-person exploration elements of the "Metroid Prime" games, "Metroid: Other M" sounds like a recipe for instant success. IGN did state some gripes with the game in their handson article on August 5, most notably the game's stiff controls and overeager auto-targeting; however, they did go on to state that "even with some weird quirks the game felt like it will be a really fun and engaging Metroid experience." Decide for yourself when "Metroid: Other M" comes out August 31. "Halo: Reach" -Sept. 14 (Xbox 360) The culmination of over a decade spent in the "Halo" universe, "Halo: Reach" is Bungie's love letter to the series that made the Xbox a household name, and the loyal fans who supported them on the path to world domination. "Halo: Reach" is the ultimate package deal: a cinematic, four-player cooperative campaign experience; fine-tuned competitive multiplayer arena; an increasingly difficult survival mode; a full-fledged map editing toolset and a user-friendly screenshot and video capturing and sharing system. In an interview between Bungie and Xbox360 Achievements in February, Bungie stated that "Halo: Reach" supports up to 60 Al characters on screen -three times more than "Halo 3" -which equates to more epic skirmishes between the player and the invading Covenant forces. With that in mind, you shouldn't expect Bungie to send off their classic series with anything less than a bang. "Sid Meier's Civilization V" -Sept. 21 (PC) Strategy games are to consoles as comedies are to the TBS network: they often try, they often fail and even the successful ones are only a success in that they don't completely suck. Strategy games, however, are the PC's bread and butter, and the turn-based "Sid Meier's Civilization" games are some of the brightest gems in the genre. "Civilization V" is all about empire building and resource management. Like "Madden 2011," "Civilization V" aims to streamline the playing experience. According to Gamespy, to lower the hurdle of micromanagement to newcomers, clickable notifications about resources and research appear on a screen that moves the camera directly to the issue, and advisers appear to suggest further guidance about empire building. "Dead Rising 2" -Sept. 28 (PS3, Xbox 360, PC) Taking place five years after the events of "Dead Rising," "Dead Rising 2" follows protagonist Chuck Greene as he rips through seething hordes of zombies in Fortune City, a metropolis reminiscent of Las Vegas. According to TeamXbox, the amount of zombies onscreen has risen from 500 in "Dead Rising" to a ridiculous 7,000. Now, imagine drivingthrough that mass of insatiable undead beings with a motorcycle equipped with a chainsaw. One of the biggest flaws of "Dead Rising" was its archaic save system. The player had one save slot to use, a decision that stifled player experimentation. Equally as frustrating was how far apart the save stations were. According to Kotaku, "Dead Rising 2" will feature multiple save slots and will have more save stations to aid the player. And while that still falls short of an auto-save feature, it's a step in the right direction. "FIFA 11"Sept. 28 (PS3, PC, Xbox 360, WiI, PS2, PSP, DS and mobile) While real-life soccer continually gets put on the back burner in America, its video game counterpart gets plenty of love in the states. Accordingto The Washington Times, "North America is the [No.] 2 market for the EA Sports FIFA game." In an interview with Kotaku.com, Electronic Arts expects the U.S. to be No. 1 when "FIFA 11" releases after Landon Donovan's game-winning goal against Algeria. According to EA Sports' website, "FIFA 2011" implements a new feature dubbed Personality+ that imbues an athlete's real-life abilities and personality into their virtual avatar. The skill-set of each player is evaluated on over 57 traits and 36 attributes. This is both good and bad news for soccer purists: While this feature might benefit those in control of Lionel Messi, those using Robbie Findley might find themselves getting consistently dispossessed.

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 29 Atlantic and Neon Liger embody indie dance scene By KAT BEIN avenue writer Hello party people, welcome to the coolest hole in the wall. Gainesville may be a small, liberal town swimming in a sea of conservatism and religious enthusiasm, but in this tiny pocket of North Central Florida, we know how to get down and dirty with the best. Thanks to the existence of UF, this otherwise bland town is home to a vibrant and colorful nightlife with a little somethingfor everyone. There are plenty of hip-hop and top -40 clubs around and even a local linedancing mecca. But most recently, it's the indie-dance scene that has really come into its own. Every night of the week there is something going on for those who just can't get enough electro. The key is knowing where your crowd is headed each night. Facebook is a great way to coordinate between friends and clubs. Any night worth its salt has an event page that sends a guest list out weekly. There you can check who's attending, what DJs or acts are playing and make your decision. Of course, if you have no idea what's going on, you might want to start by checking out one of two nights: The Atlantic on Thursdays, or Neon Liger at Spannk on Saturdays. The Atlantic and Neon Liger are the most talked about nights in town, the quintessential Gainesville dance scene hang outs and the best places to get started.

30, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION U MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Where to eat when you get the munchies By ERIN RAUCH and NorthwestSecond Street. Atthis avenue writer corner you will find the most exaui The long list of local restaurants in Gainesville may seem daunting at first, but by the end of this brief tutorial you'll be well on your way to findingyour favorite nook in the midst of the multitude of local eateries. Now, I'm no food critic, but after visiting a handful of restaurants in Gainesville I can recommend a few of the tastiest and most affordable joints in town. Mexican Boca Fiesta's menu boasts a variety of Mexican food and the best margaritas in town. I have yet to test out the latter's truth, but after eating my weight in their nachos, tacos and guacamole (they let you mash it yourself, so be prepared to flex those extrinsic hand muscles), I have no doubt they will deliver in that area too. Their chow isn't limited to what's listed on the standard menu. Every month they feature a unique meat. This month they have "swordfishstick" tacos, with you guessed it, swordfish. Not weird enough for you? In January they featured peppers stuffed with crispy meal worms. As the brave soul that I am, I tried it, and not only was it palatable, but it was tasty. For a menu and a detailed list of events, visit their website, bocafiesta.com or call 352-336-8226. If my blurb of praise has already convinced you, then head downtown to the Sun Center, 232 SE 1st St. I recommend sitting outside, they have fresh peppers and other edibles growing right on the walls. Pizza Step back into the '70s and enjoy a deep-dish pizza in the back of an aquamarine VW Bus at Satchel's Pizza, located at 1800 NE 23rd Ave. If eating in a van isn't your style, you can eat outside, inside or in a tree house. No matter where you sit, the pizza is plentiful and delicious with enough toppings to satisfy all of your taste buds. They also have salads and calzones that are rumored to turn you into a fanatic after the first bite. Once you've finished a quarter of that pizza pie (trust me, you won't be able to finish it in one sitting) order a cannoli or five, they are baked fresh in house. Take a walk to Lightnin' Salvage behind the main restaurant before you leave to splurge on that bacon wallet you have been searching for or on any of their unique trinkets. The restaurant is cash-only, but don't fret if you forget to bring some dough, they have an ATM in house. For more information on the menu and restaurant hours visit their website, satchelspizza.com or call 352335-7272. Cuban Flaco's Cuban Bakery is located at the corner of University Avenue site Cuban food in town. They have arepas, empanadas, Cuban sandwiches and a variety of pastries. It all comes at a good price and, frankly, the taste is undeniably awesome. I recommend the Cuban sandwich, not onlyforthe savorytaste but for the portion size as well. They have a menu available online at allmenus. com or you can call 352-371-2000 for more information. Sushi We may be in the center of the state, but we're not lacking in the raw fish department. Gainesville is home to a long list of sushi restaurants, some featuring sushi bowls while others offer a tapas-style dining experience. Dragonfly serves tapas-style, which means you share your meal. lt'san intriguingconcept, butdon't be surprised if you find yourself dueling for that last piece of spicy tuna. Dragonfly is located at 201 SE 2nd Ave. For more information on their menu items and hours visit their website, dragonflysushi.com or call 352-371-3359. BBQ David's Real Pit BBQ features a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Whether you're craving a slab of ribs, corn on the cob or a pulledpork sandwich, they have it all. Employees don People Eating Tasty Animals (PETA) shirts and serve you with the best Southern hospitality. So if you're in the mood for some delicious BBQ slathered in your favorite house-made sauce, head down to 5121 NW 39th Ave. For information regarding restaurant hours and menus visit their website, davidsbbq.com or call 352373-2002. Everything in between At The Top, you'll find entrees that are both vegan and meat-eater friendly. Saying their menu is centered on variety doesn't even cut it. No matter what you're in the mood for, The Top will get you the grub you need to fuel up for a night of fun. Located at 30 N Main St., they are just a hop, skip and a jump away from many of the local music venues. Pair one of their gigantic burgers with somesweet potatofriesand you'll be waddlingfull and happy out the door at the end of your meal. For more information call 352-337-1118. Craving curry? Look no further. Tasty Buddha is located at 25 NW 16th Ave. Suite C and has some of the best curry and rice dishes in town. You can pair their rice with meat ranging from chicken to shrimp and vegetarian-friendly options like tofu and tempeh. They also have burgers, salads and sandwiches. For more information visit their website, tastybuddha.com or call 352-377-0287. rw LSidewalk Sale Fashionistas and bargain hunters alike sift through boxes and racks during a sidewalk sale outside the American Apparel store on Southwest First Avenue. American Apparel hosts a sidewalk sale every Saturday and Sunday through the month of August with prices starting at $5. An abundance of music venues By MARISSA PRIETO avenue writer Gainesville is home to a very diverse group of students, and in that particular spirit it also houses a diverse group of music venues to serve your auditory needs. Whether you're going to be dancing at one of the many clubs to your favorite DJs while sipping on a gin and tonic orjamming to indie music with PBR in hand, there's a venue to fit your style. On any weekend night, you can stop in at 1982 to support a fresh-off-the-block local band or fistpump the night away to the sounds of booming house music at The Vault. Here are some local favorites: Tim and Terry's Music & More After having a few beers at your buddy's house party in the student ghetto, stumble down to Tim and Terry's Music & More, the two-story purple house behind Target Copy on University Avenue, for some live music any night of the week. (Editors note: Try to drink responsibly, and don't drink and drive). This bar/deli/convenience store/music venue has everything a college student could want. Feeling creative? Show off your musical talent at open-mic night, which usually takes up to four nights a week. The front porch is also a great place to mingle and meet new faces. Everyone is welcome and there's never a cover charge. Food is served until midnight. "It's definitely a place that you don't have to worry about what you wear," Sarah Plimmer, manager of Tim & Terry's, said. "Come as you are." Common Grounds There's something different happening downtown at Common Grounds, 210 SW Second Ave., every night. If there's no live show, they promise to have happy hour all night long ($1 domestics and $2 imports.) "We're a little bit of everything," said Jason Rockhill, co-owner of Common Grounds. Big names like Gainesville-based ska band Less Than Jake (coming Sept. 23 and 24) and JJ Grey & Mofro (coming Oct. 27) have graced the stage, as well as popular local bands like Michael Claytor and his Friends and Paxico via Mexico. What seems like a quaint, oneroom venue can pack up to 400 people for a really popular band. "We're the kind of place that the 'next big thing' plays at," Rockhill said. Monday nights are karaoke. Fridays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. are cookouts and happy hour Loca I on The Porch, the L.aLoutdoor sitting area of Common Grounds. For shows, the venue is 18 and up with covers ranging from $3 to $17, with an additional $2 cover for those under 21. For nights with no shows, there is no cover and it's 21 and up. 1982 Video games, beer and music. 1982 doesn't need much more of a description to bring the crowd. Close to campus, 1982,919W University Ave., is a great place to see local bands play, enjoyfree video games and hang out with friends. Indie, hip-hop, reggae, ska and punk bands draw an average crowd of 100 people four to five nights a week. "We get a lot of brand-new bands because we are open to booking them," said Jennifer Vito, manager of 1982. "It's really exciting to see them two years later if they've made it big." The bar is open to a wide variety of music, both local and underground. Monday nights are video-game night, which means $1 beer, no cover and no bands. Tuesday nights are stand-up comedy shows. Wednesday nights are industry night. 1982 is all ages every night. Cover usually ranges between $5 and $10 but depends on the the artist. In addition to the live music venues in town, there are also a number of clubs where you can listen to the latest house or dance music. The Vault The Vault, 238 W University Ave., is one of Gainesville's newest and most popular nightclubs open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. There is the occasional live music performance, but every night Vaultgoers get to experience the state-ofthe-art lighting, sound and club environment. Summer B-ers were able to see DJ Steve Aoki, mash-up artist Milkman and Boston-based rapper Sam Adams live at The Vault this July. The club is 18 and up. Cover depends on the artist performing. The Venue The Venue, 233 W University Ave., is one of Gainesville's main nightclubs and is guaranteed to always have a line out the door. It's mainly a dance club, but it also has live music on certain nights. In recent months, country-music star Corey Smith and rock band Motion City Soundtrack have passed through to play a show at The Venue. Bassnectar, a DJ from California, will be comingSept. 15. Aside from these, Gainesville has many more to offer. All it takes is some looking around and the courage to try a new place in order to find your new favorite bar, and potentially your new favorite band, in town. s i-

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 31 Get your buzz on the right way By SHELBY WEBB avenue writer Alright, so you're kind of sick of Starbucks. I don't blame you. Shelling out almost $4 for a urine-sample-sized coffee can put a damper on your caffeine rush. Some of you might not be big fans of the whole corporation thing either;' after all there is a Starbucks on every street corner of America blasting Michael Buble to anyone within earshot. So what are you to do when you're dyingfor a delicious pick me up? Well lucky for us, Gainesville's got some sweet locally owned and operated coffee digs that won't kill your budget. Plus they can give you the good feeling that comes with supporting local businesses. I went to three Wi-Fi-connected coffee havens close to campus -Maude's, Volta and Karma Cream -to see what they've got to offer. Maude's: Maude's Classic Cafe, 101 SE Second Place, is ironically situated across the street from the downtown Starbucks. It has a nice covered patio outside and a big interior. Some desserts are available, famously the chocolate mousse cake, as well as breakfast and lunch. As far as the coffee goes, I tried their most popular drink: the Maude's House Iced Coffee. It was nice and light with a pleasant hint of cinnamon and even had a little savory flavor of honey. The pleasant two-person team on shift explained that they really enjoy forming relationships with their clients. "Isn't that right, Frank?" calls one worker to a man sitting in the corner, who confirms with a casual thumbsup. Volta: If you're feeling a bit more exotic or taking someone on a first date, try going to Volta Coffee, Tea & Chocolate, 48 SW 2nd St. The owner, Anthony Rue, is kind of obsessed with coffee -seriously, obsessed. "We send our people out to seek out roasters with the best coffee from around the world," Rue says with a huge spark of excitement. "We make sure we get the freshest beans possible, which means a lot of our coffees are seasonal due to their harvest dates." From Ethiopia to Peru, the menu inside is constantly updated with new brews from around the world. And it's notjustthe beans he's consumed with. Rue sends his baristas off to national and state wide barista competitions to be judges and to show everyone that Gainesville can rep some serious coffee skills. He insisted that I try their house cappuccino, which was served with a fantastic presentation. I'm usually not a cappuccinofan, butthis cup was surprisingly smooth. Before I knew it my mug was empty and Rue was smiling from ear to ear once he saw I downed the whole thing in record time. Karma Cream: The last stop on my coffee crusade was Karma Cream, 1025 W University Ave., a hot spot for vegans, organicgoods lovers and fair-trade coffee fans. In fact, they only serve fair-trade coffees and espressos, which means with every beverage you get a free side order of clean conscience. They're open until 3 a.m., accommodating those all night study sessions very well. And their coffee is awesome. As soon as I took my first sip of their Cubano Con Leche, I had a profound coffeegasm. The drink is sweet and extremely delicious, almost like a dessert. Payal Patel, the barista on shift, told me what she thinks makes the store special. "We're a lot more than just coffee, tea and snacks," she said with a shy smile, "We reallytryto make a friendly environment." As I visited each coffee shop, I started to see what sets them apart from their corporate counterparts: passion. The owners and employees really enDana Burke/Alligator Staff Volta owner Anthony Rue turns coffee into a science experiment with the Kenya Karimiku Siphon at $4.50 a cup. joy making coffee, getting to know you and making sure your visit is perfect.

40, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION U MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Enea, Walton reunite in professional softball league By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer gluca@alligator org When Tim Walton and Francesca Enea first met back in 2002, neither could have predicted how much they would accomplish together. At the time, Walton was just an assistant coach at Oklahoma and Enea had not yet started her high school career. But when Enea's older sister, Christina, became a Sooner, Francesca and Walton began to forge a relationship early. Eight years and 232 UF wins later, the duo has taken their game to the National Pro Fastpitch league, where Walton is coaching the Kissimme-based USSSA Pride and Enea is playing outfield for him. And while Enea and Walton have faced a steep learning curve during their inaugural two months, both are happy with how far they have come and are excited to take things even further. "I really had a rude awakening the first couple games," Enea said. "I realized I needed to make certain mental and swing adjustments, but at this point I think every game and every at-bat I'm getting better and definitely making progress. "It's an amazing league and I'm so happy I'm in it." ROUGH TRANSITION Enea, like countless athletes before her, has found the transition from college athletics to the professional ranks to be difficult. The 2010 UF graduate is hitting just .182 with two home runs and six RBIs through her first 18 games, but there are many explanations for her unflattering statistics. Enea and Walton were late to join the Pride because of Florida's deep run in the NCAA Tournament. Although the Pride season began on May 31, Enea did not make her NPF debut until the 11th game of the season after A great haircut is as simple as a stop at the Reitz between classes. RUZ JN% Call today Hours 379-4686 Mon -Fri 8-5 or Walk In Sat 9-2 Offering men and women's services Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff Former UF outfielder Francesca Enea is now a member of the National Pro Fastpitch's USSSA Pride. She is hitting .182 with two home runs and six RBIs through her first 18 games. playing with UF in the Women's College World Series. Enea ended her Gators career in an 0-for-24 slump and was expected to return to form against some of the best pitchers in the world. But she successfully put her struggles behind her and delivered her first career hit in her third NPF at-bat. "I was really nervous getting to play for a new team, but once I got here and started hitting and throwing the ball around it was like I started something new," Enea said. "It was a new chapter and Florida and college softball were behind me." Because of how the NPF operates, new players and new coaches can have a difficult time making an early impression. The league only consists of four teams, leading to loaded rosters and stiff competition each game. "She's always smiling and she's just got that personality; that charisma." Jessica Mendoza USSSA Pride outfielder "Every player in this league has really accomplished a lot," Walton said. "There are no free outs, no easy pitchers, and no off days." Every team Enea faces has gold medalists or former All-Americans like Jennie Finch of Chicago and Monica Abbott of Tennessee. This drastic jump in the level of competition typically leads to poor hitting numbers from firstyear players. Of the five rookies on the Pride, none are batting better than .244. "Not only are the pitchers throwing different stuff at you but they're smart, too," Enea said. "They know how to set hitters up, especially rookie hitters." Walton and Enea are also faced with a brutally busy schedule, as the team plays 56 games in 84 days, including 22 in the month of July. The hectic schedule means the Pride is limited to just one practice per week, forcing Walton to implement changes on the fly. "If we're struggling we only have one day to fix it," Walton said. "It's harder to get everything to gel properly and get communication right at this level." Communication is something that has never been an issue for Enea, who was a vocal leader from the moment she stepped on the Florida campus and has continued that trend in the pros. Enea has kept a level head despite fighting for playing time for the first time in three years and has even bridged the gap between Walton and her teammates due to her experience in his system. "She's always smiling and she's just got that personality; that charisma," outfielder and gold medalist Jessica Mendoza said. "Franny is such a humble player and she's always looking to learn when she's not playing." COACHING CURVE Walton has only coached the team during home games to balance his work with the Gators, but he has still impressed his players with his ability to adjust to a different style of play. "He's done a great job of coming in and using his style, but learning from us, too," Mendoza said. "He asks us a lot of questions, respects us, and really treats us like professional athletes." The entire season has been a learning experience for Walton, with the Pride having to manufacture runs more than the Gators did this past season, when UF hit a school record 109 home runs. Working in the NPF has also allowed Walton to work with fast and athletic players -the type of athletes he hopes to bring to Florida in the coming years. "It's been nice," Walton said. "I've learned a lot of things from some of these players. I've gained so much confidence coaching this team because I watch the way I run a practice here and it validates the way I work with my teams at Florida."

Sports MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Moody prepared to take on bigger role in UF offense Gators RBs to carry heavier workload By TYLER JETT Alligator Staff Writer tjett@alligator org Emmanuel Moody admits he was a selfish running back when he first arrived in Gainesville. Transferring from Southern Cal in 2007, Moody says he was too concerned with building off the stats he posted during his time with the Trojans. How many carries would he get? Yards? Touchdowns? But, through two seasons at UF, Moody has yet to put up numbers quite as good as he did with USC, where he rushed for 459 yards and was named the Pacific-10 Conference Offensive Freshman of the Year by Sporting News. Splitting carries with three other backs and a now-legendary option quarterback has left him with only 58 carries in each of the past two years. While handling such a light load, however, Moody came to a realization. "This is my 15th year playing football and personal goals really are almost foolish," he said at UF's media day on Aug. 10. "This is a team game, you have to have team goals." Ironically, the redshirt senior may have made this realization just as his role in the UF offense is about to increase. With quarterback John Brantley taking over for Tim Tebow, the Gators' coaching staff has made it clear the offense will be tweaked to fit their its personnel. With Tebow gone, so too is the idea of the UF quarterback receiving the bulk of the team's carries. Last season, Tebow carried the ball 217 times. Running back Jeff -1111I I Demps, by comparison, was second on the team with 99 carries. While none of the running backs will suggest they are happy Tebow is gone, each one admitted they are excited about their expanded role. "Who doesn't want that?" running backs coach Stan Drayton said. "They're competitors. They want, in their minds, to have an effect on the football game. As a running back, with the ball in our hands, we definitely have a chance to have a major effect on the game." Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff UF running back Emmanuel Moody is expected to benefit from Tim Tebow's departure. He received 58 carries last season, while Tebow racked up 217 rushing attempts. And while the team loses a weapon in Tebow's legs, the Gators' rushing attack will actually be more versatile this season, Drayton said. Because Brantley is more comfortable dropping back than Tebow was, UF will keep defenses off balance by switching between the spread and undercenter formations. Drayton added that losing Tebow will make recruiting running backs easier, pointing out freshman Mack Brown, the No. 13 running back in the nation last year, according to Rivals.com. While watching the Gators, Brown said he knew the running backs' roles would change with Brantley at quarterback. "If you've got a major playmaker, you've got to have the ball in his hands," Brown said. "But since Tebow left, some of the carries have fallen in our hands, so we've just got to do what we can with it, do our best with it." In particular, the running backs will need to come up big in short yardage situations, when Tebow powered his way to many of his 57 career rushing touchdowns. At 215 pounds, Moody is now the heaviest ball carrier on the team, meaning his number could get called a lot. He doesn't care about the stats that come with those carries, but that doesn't mean he isn't happy. "There will be a lot more carries to go around to the running backs," he said, "and that's why we came to Florida -to run the ball." NCAA teams should not ban NFL representatives from practice et's pretend your high school refused to release your grades to universities across the country. They don't want these institutions distracting students from their studies. As a result, your SAT and ACT scores will be the sole reason you attend college. Now, tell me why anybody would enroll there. My next question is, why would a high school create these unfair rules? This same thing is going on in college football. After a recent string of allegations involving players receiving improper benefits from agents, coaches have thrown around the idea of banning NFL scouts and team representatives from practices to avoid any trouble or distractions. Alabama became the first school to actually act upon the threat. But this shouldn't become a trend, because it isn't going to work. I understand that Nick Saban, Urban Meyer and the rest of the coaching community want to distance themselves from these "scumbags," as Meyer refers to them, but in the end it's going to hurt these storied programs. When high school athletes are in the process of choosing a college to attend, they want to go to the place that gives them the best chance at making the jump to the NFL. A Alabama's ban could cause a shift in power. Middle-of-the-road Anthony Chiang football programs are going to be the ones to Cing Reaction reap the benefits from achiang@alligator org ra h eeisfo Twitter @Chia ngReaction it. Instead of going to Alabama, where game days are your only shot at grabbing the attention of NFL scouts, top athletes with dreams of playing professional football are going to choose the schools that allow them full exposure. The ban is pointless. An exchange of money is not going to happen at practice where coaches are all over the field monitoring players. Let'sbe real. The problem happens through texts messages and at nightclubs at 2 a.m. Coaches can't monitor this, unless they want to take away phones too. Instead, they need to do better than this half-hearted attempt to stop the problem and just accept the fact that it's impossible to prevent. The only thing that can be done is to inform the players and then trust their integrity. But I'm not naive. I'm well aware that integrity is hard to find in NCAA sports today. urta es h "We're definitely coming for [Alabama] this year because that is a mark on our team. We still have a chip on our shoulder from [the SEC Championship], so that will be a game we'll be looking forward to."

42, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 UF FOOTBALL Bostic and Jenkins in friendly competition for MLB spot By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccall@alligator org Before the Gators will know if they can replace Brandon Spikes, they'll have to decide who will try to fill his shoes. The position battle is down to close friends Jelani Jenkins and Jon Bostic. "We're not even thinking about that really," Jenkins said. "Every practice, we're rooting each other on when we make a big play and trying to get each other better. I think our friendship really carries onto the field." With a thick 6-foot-1, 238-pound frame, Bostic looks the part moreso than Jenkins, who's listed 15 pounds lighter. But bulking up too much would be a disservice to one of Jenkins'best assets: his speed. A standout at fullback and linebacker in high school, Jenkins said playing in the middle is his favorite task, as he has the best chance for action and can read the quarterback. He's gotten work at the strongside spot as well, part of linebackers coach D.J. Durkin's plan to cross train his players and rotate them often. "Any of those guys could see time anywhere," Durkin said. "We're going Jenkins to find the best combination of three that we can. Jelani has a lot of great attributes about him, and I'd say he's going to find a way onto the field somewhere." At times, Jenkins and Bostic have lined up side-by-side in the middle of a 3-4 formation, and while there has been speculation the Gators will use that set often this season, Durkin and his players repeatedly used "three" when discussing the number of starting linebackers at UF's media day on Aug. 10. Beyond the friendship between Jenkins and Bostic, the group of linebackers has bonded over dinnerand-a-movie dates. Well, make that lunch-and-game film. The players received DVDs with their performance at spring practice, and they've made daily trips to UF's film room to watch those clips and whatever else they could get their hands on, a practice often utilized by predecessors Spikes and Ryan Stamper. "We were watching some stuff from like, I don't even know what year -Brandon Siler was here and they were at Alabama," Bostic said. "We just like watching film, watching the game of football and learning the game every day." ~efk Clinique will make you happy. Guaranteed.

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 43 UF FOOTBALL Brown ready to shine after two-year injury absence By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccall@a Iligator org Jeremy Brown is thankful every day he laces up his cleats for football practice. That's because at one time, just putting his socks on was almost impossible. A back injury suffered during a weightlifting session kept Brown out of action for nearly two full years, causing him to consider quitting the sport altogether. But after a recovery fraught with a deluge of doctor visits and plenty of pain, the redshirt sophomore is battling for a starting spot at cornerback this season, and he's hoping to reach the potential he flashed in his first semester on campus. "Right now, I'm the healthiest I've been since I've been here," Brown said. DERAILED Brown enrolled early for the spring semester of 2008, and it didn't take long for the Orlando native to impress coaches. His performance in spring practice had him ahead of classmate Janoris Jenkins, who started as a freshman and is expected to be one of the nation's top corners this season. But Brown never got a chance to shine like Jenkins did. During a summer weightlifting session shortly before two-a-days, Brown was hoping to leave the gym with a new personal best in the leg press. Instead, he hobbled out with a serious injury. While lifting, his back came off the seat and gave out. He said it was the worst pain he'd ever felt, and with good reason. The damage: two ruptured discs, inflamed facet joints and nerve damage. The injury set off a tour of back specialists around Gainesville, so many that Brown couldn't even give an estimate. To relieve some of the pain, doctors burned nerves in his back to kill them off -a procedure called a rhizotomy -but that was far from a solution. At times, Brown had trouble walking, sleeping, dressing himself and even leaning over to wash his face. "I just thought, 'I'm done,"' Brown said. "I didn't think I'd be able to recover fully and just get back to myself. I Truly All Inclusive! Unlimited Utilities Included! 352.338.7467 1v1 sM 1 felt like I was always going to have a (mental) block with my back and it was always going to be an issue." ROCK BOTTOM As the doctor visits mounted, Brown didn't see much improvement with his back. If everyday tasks were a chore, how could he hope to play football again? He said he thought about giving up the sport, largely because he wanted to be able to support his 3-year-old son, Jaden. "His life is more precious than football," Brown said. "Football is not who I am, it's just what I do. At the end of the day, I have to think about my future. Am I going to be able to walk again? Am I going to be able to interact? If we couldn't get this fixed, you always think about just hanging it up." In his darkest period, Brown turned to running back Emmanuel Moody, one of the team's most devout Christians and a player with plenty of experience when it comes to injuries. Since transferring from Southern Cal, Moody has battled nagging ankle injuries, and he counseled Brown on his faith and how to deal with being dinged up. "When it first happened, he hit rock bottom," Moody SEE BROWN, PAGE 44 Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF cornerback Jeremy Brown is competing for a starting role after sitting out the last two seasons with a back injury he suffered during a weightlifting session.

44, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Wilder set to announce decision 0 HE IS CONSIDERING UF. By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer tgreen@alligator org Wednesday could be a big day for a select few schools and their 2011 recruiting classes. And UF happens to be one of those select few. Both cornerback Nick Waisome and athlete James Wilder Jr. are scheduled to announce their college destinations that day, and both have the Gators among their top choices. Waisome, a four-star recruit out of Groveland South Lake, plans to orally commit Wednesday during a nationally televised announcement. His decision could take place at the ESPN Club in Downtown Disney, but details have not been finalized. Wilder, a five-star athlete from Tampa Plant, plans to announce his decision the same day. Wilder's high school coach, Robert Weiner, confirmed last Monday to Rivals.com that Wilder, the No. 3 recruit in the nation, will make his announcement Wednesday and it is expected to happen around 5 p.m. Wilder has said he would like to make his announcement in the gymnasium at Plant. Wilder is one of the most coveted recruits in the nation and plays running back as well as linebacker and defensive end. "I've slept on it a lot," Wilder said at an announcement for his teammates Phillip Ely and Tony Posada. "Today I'll have FSU in the lead, tomorrow I'll have UF and in three days I'll have Georgia. .I've still got a lot of thinking to do in the last seven days." He was thought to be a UF lean up until recently when he didn't show up at the Gators' sixth annual Friday Night Lights camp last month. Instead, he was visiting FSU that day and missed the camp because of it. Waisome, the No. 7 cornerback recruit in the nation according to Rivals.com, impressed those in attendance at Friday Night Lights and worked on developing his relationship with UF's coaches. He attended the camp a day after taking a visit to FSU and spoke favorably of each school's football program. "I know where I'm leaning, but I'm probably going to sit down with my parents and talk things over," Waisome said after the camp last month. His top five schools are Florida, Florida State, South Carolina, Georgia and LSU.

"Injuries are humbling because people put you on a pedestal when you play for the Gators, and when you get an injury, you're that forgotten guy. "It was a humbling experience for him, and he's healed from his back, and it looks like he's having a great year this year." BOUNCING BACK After the Sugar Bowl in January, Brown said he finally started to see improvement with his back. He went through spring practice and is battling Moses Jenkins for the starting spot opposite Janoris Jenkins, and while he says he's fully healthy for the first time since the spring of 2008, every play can be a challenge. The physical pain is mostly gone. He still feels tightness in his back from time to time, but that's something he says he just has to tough out. Besides, that's much better than the sharp, stinging pain that plagued him before. The bigger issue is one faced by many athletes recovering from serious injury: playing without fear of another ailment. "It's still tough," Brown said. "I'd be lying if I said, 'Mentally, I'm just ready to go.' Football There are certain things I second-guess, like should I really just go up and throw myself in there? In the back of my head I'm just thinking, 'Man, this might be my back again."' With his recovery complete, the mental hurdle is the final one for Brown to clear. One of his close friends, safety Will Hill, said he sees Brown hitting his stride, but he's still waiting for him to regain his confidence and hit his full potential. "I [told Brown], 'By you being 100 percent, by you being on the field, it makes me a better safety,"' Hill said. "I know what type of player he is and the things we expect out of him. I know what he can do and what he could become."

46, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION U MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 SI-AII[ OL ]7I1LI PIROGIRANI For the first time in a long while, expectations for Florida football are a bit tempered. That comes with losing leaders and NFL talents like Tim Tebow, Brandon Spikes, Joe Haden and Aaron Hernandez, but strong recruiting classes have kept the roster full of ability. Potential aside, there are plenty of questions about this team that won't be answered until at least a few games into the season. QuarterbackJohn Brantley faces the biggest challenge: taking over an offense with an inexperienced receiving corps and doing it in the wake of Tebow's departure. All eyes will be on the redshirt junior, and he'll lean on a veteran offensive line and stable of running backs, led by jeff Demps and Emmanuel Moody. Andre Debose and Chris Rainey will be the spark plugs at the slot receiver role formerly held by Percy Harvin, and quarterback-turned-tight end Jordan Reed will take over for Hernandez. A host of big names are gone from the defense, but a mix of seasoned players and highly touted youngsters will fill the holes. The secondary needs a solid corner opposite Janoris Jenkins but should be the best unit, and depth on the defensive line and at linebacker should mean heavy rotations to keep players fresh. Tie Gators won't have a ton of time to work out the kinks, either. An uncharacteristically challenging non-conference game with I SF comes in Week 2, followed by trips to Tennessee and defending champ Alabamia in two of the next three games. WOMEN'S BASKETBALL Coach Amanda Butler's future looked bright after her first two seasons with the Gators. But after taking a step back last year, Butler will need to rally her squad if she wants to get IT on par with conference powerhouses Tennessee and LSU. This season could prove to be the most challenging campaign under Butler's leadership. IT will have to replace about 56 percent of its offense from a team that finished just 15-17 last season. Optimists could see the large amount of turnover as a positive after such a mediocre season, but Butler will have a difficult time replacing senior guard Steffi Sorensen, who led the Gators with a 9.6 scoring average and 83 three-pointers. A telling sign of the frustration at IT last season was the transfer of underclassmen Christal Caldwell, Tessah Holt and Trunae Lucas. Those departures, combined with five graduating seniors, leave only six returnees. In response, Butler hit the recruiting trails hard in a rebuilding effort and hauled in six preps, most notably Deaundra Young, a 6-foot-2 power forward from Titusville Astronaut High. MEN'S TENNIS After filling in the NC AA Round of 16 last spring, the men's tennis team will look to rebound by leaning on Paris-based senior Alexandre Lacroix. Competing in the No. 1 singles position for the Gators and teaming with then-senior Antoine Benneteau last year, Lacroix won a combined 65 matches, ending the season as an Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-American and ranked No. 12 nationally. Including Lacroix the Gators return five of their six singles competitors from the team's seasonending loss against Georgia. Expect the biggest improvement from sophomores Bob Van Overbeek and Sekou Bangoura.Jr. The duo earned SEC All-Freshmen Team honors last spring after enrolling at UF in january. Getting more time to w ork with coach Andy Jackson can only improve both players. The team's biggest hurdle will be replacing Benneteau, a career 42-19 singles competitor. But if losing the No. 3 singles player is the biggest concern, expectations should be high this upcoming season. The Gators enter this season hoping to win their fifth-consecutive Southeastern Conference Championship, and the team might need to lean on its offense to extend that streak. UT returns its top five scorers from 2009, including redshirt sophomore McKenzie Barney, who led the Gators with seven goals in conference play. When Barney emerged as an offensive leader late in the season, coach Becky Burleigh moved her to the team's lone forward position. But that move could be short-lived as redshirt senior Ashlee Elliott, the team's starting forward entering 2009, returns for a fifth season after suffering a torn ACL early last year. Regardless of where Elliott and Barney line up, the Gators will have plenty of offensive options. And the team will need them, as three of the four starting defenders from Ut's season-ending loss to Oregon State are gone. The men's golf team will lose its two top golfers from last season with the gTaduation of Tyson Alexander and Tim McKenney. Seniors Bank Vongvanij, who shot under par in two of the final four events of the spring season, and Alex Echavarria, who finished the NCAA Championships at even par, will lead the team in the fall with the absence of Alexander and McKenney. However, the women's golf team will return its five starters this year. Senior essica Yadloczky and juniors Evan Jensen and Andrea Watts will be looked upon to make the jump and provide veteran leadership. Sophomore Isabelle Lendl will attempt to build upon her stellar freshman season. They hope to carry the Gators into the NCAA Championships this year, a tournament they missed in the spring. MEN'S BASKETBALL 'TIhere's two ways to look at the upcoming UF basketball season. The team is returning all five of its starters, so either it will be better for all its experience, or it will be about the same for its small amount of turnover. Coach Billy Donovan got the Gators to commit to defense a year ago, but easy baskets were hard to come by, a trend that could continue without much of a change in the team's ball handlers. Freshman Patric Young, a McDonald's All-American, is the biggest addition to the roster, as he comes in with similar hype as Kenny Boynton did a year ago. Young is a physical front court banger. Small fonvard Chandler Parsons took his game to the next level a season ago and will be counted on to lead this team in his senior season, even with fellow seniors Vernon Macklin and Alex Tvus around. Macklin showed the potential that made him a top recruit coming out of high school at various times in 2009, but he was inconsistent from game to game. And Tyus dropped his field goal percentage from 59.1 his sophomore season to 50.3 his junior year. If he can't return to his efficient form, he could lose a lot of minutes to Young and sophomore Erik Murphy. The biggest question might be w whether ITs young backcourt from a season ago can make the leap. Junior Erving Walker struggled at times with his new position at point guard, and sophomore Kenny Boynton's outside shot was nonexistent for much of the year. VOLLEYBALL Last season the Gators did not win the Southeastern Conference for the first time in 19 seasons. On top of that, they lost the school's all-time digs leader, Elyse Cusack, to graduation. But the outlook on the upcoming season is still bright. Florida returns All-American Kelly Murphy, who recorded a school-record nine triple-doubles last season, and outside hitter KristyJaeckel. But LIF experienced some unexpected departures in the offseason when setter Brynja Rodgers and outside hitter Colleen Ward transferred. Coach Mary Wise will attempt to fill those voids with incoming transfers Stephanie Ferrell, Cinthya Roberto and Tangerine Wiggs. Meanwhile, senior Erin Fleming will be the starting libero in place of Cusack. Fleming did not start a match last season but will be looked upon as a catalyst for the Gators offense this year. A mix of veterans will fill out the rest of the lineups. WOMEN'S TENNIS The women's tennis team came close to capturing the NCAA Championship, only to fall short 4-3 against Stanford in May. \Vhile rebuilding for another run at the tide, coach Roland Ihornqvist can rest easy knowing his squad is set at the top. Florida was led by a pair of sensational freshmen last season in Lauren Embree and Allie \Vill. In their loss to the Cardinal, the Gators used Embree and Will in the Nos. 1 and 2 positions, respectively. Embree, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's National Rookie of the Year, earned one of UT's two singles victories that day. That win gave Embree her 20th of the spring, lifting her to the No. 8 national ranking at the season's conclusion. Will was just as effective in her first year at I, going 26-1 in singles competition and ending the year as the No. 11 I -ranked singles player. Thornqvist's biggest concern this season will be replacing Embree's doubles partner, Marrit Boonstra. Boonstra, a three-time All-American, was a combined 152-39 between singles and doubles play at Ut. With a women's national title and men's National Swimmer of the Year, last season was a big one for the I swimming program. Both squads will hope to build on that success when this year's schedule kicks off on Sept. 25. Tie IT men's swim team returns Brett Fraser, Sebastien Rousseau, Rodion Davelaar, Joey Pedraza and Conor Dwyer, the 2010 Division I National Men's Swimmer of the Year. Tie women's squad will have to overcome the loss of 2010 Female Diver of the Year Kara Salamone but retains SEC Female Swimmer of the Year Gemma Spofforth. Tie Gators will also be celebrating the debut of a notable newcomer, freshman Elizabeth Beisel, who broke a 26-yearold UT record in the 400-meter individual medley and the school mark for the 200 IM during a competition this month. CROSS COUNTRY The UT women's cross country team is coming off a stellar season in which it won three of seven events. But this season it will be without one of its better runners: Stacevjohnson. She finished in the top 10 in four of the five events she competed in last fall. The squad closed out the season with a seventh-place finish in the NCAA Championships. 1hrings are different with the UT men's cross country team. The men did not have quite the season they were looking for as they failed to earn a bid to the NCAA Championship. But the Gators hope to change that this year. They return Anthony Morales, who was the first UT runner to finish in three of the five competitions he participated in. Rosa Taveras / Alligator Staff

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 47 UF FOOTBALL Debose, Rainey learning to play "Percy" position By TYLER JETT Alligator Staff Writer tjett@alligator org Andre Debose said he didn't want the hype, not that fans were going to oblige. When Debose signed with UF in 2009, he immediately drew comparisons to Percy Harvin. The YouTube highlight tapes showed Debose could be a matchup nightmare with his big-play potential when the ball was in his hands or in the air, making him a natural fit to replace Harvin in the Gators' hybrid position. In the weeks before and after National Signing Day, Debose tried to convince outsiders that he wasn't Percy 2.0. But the comparisons kept coming, and even coach Urban Meyer wasn't helping him stay out of the spotlight. "I've got to tell you, this Andre Debose -I know I can't single guys out, but I'm going to single him out," Meyer said after he signed. "He's as good as there is. I think he's the best player in America. Before I came down here, I flipped on his highlight tape one more time so I'll leave with a big smile on my face." Before he could practice with the Gators, however, Debose suffered a hamstring injury in May 2009 while running track for Sanford Seminole High. Once he enrolled, UT trainers discovered Debose had tendon damage that required season-ending surgery. But Debose called the injury "a blessing in disguise." While fans became infatuated with the Gators' newest crop of recruits, Debose slipped away from the center of attention. "I like the anonymous Andre Debose," he said at UF's media day on Aug. 10. "I'm not too much into the rah-rah, always in the spotlight (players). That's not me at all." As much as he likes that ambiguity, though, Debose will soon Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF wide receiver Andre Debose came to Gainesville with a lot of hype after signing as a five-star prospect, but he said he enjoys being out of the spotlight since missing last season with a hamstring injury. find himself back in the limelight as he and junior Chris Rainey compete for playing time at the slot position made famous by Harvin. And with that attention comes pressure, as the performance of whoever plays in the hybrid role could determine how explosive UF's offense will be this season. With Debose injured and Rainey at running back last year, the Gators did not have a player with the skill set to be a dual-threat like Harvin had been. In 2008, Harvin touched the ball 110 times, leading to 1,303 yards of total offense and 17 touchdowns. Last season, receiver Riley Cooper led all non-return men with 975 yards of total offense -all but 14 of which came through the air. UF wants defenses to account for the slot receiver running the ball, though, and receivers coach Zach Azzanni said Rainey has a slight edge because of his experience and the extra 15 practices he spent in the hybrid spot during the spring. For his part, Debose's athletic ability could give defensive coordinators nightmares, Azzanni said. But getting back on the field, and into the spotlight, will depend on his ability to learn the offense. "He runs really fast and he jumps really high and he has great body position catching the ball," Azzanni said. "Now it's my job to make sure he does all the other things, the details."

48, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Pouncey embraces new leadership role as senior By ANTHONY CHIANG leader this year -the Tebow," Johnson said. Alligator Staff Writer "He has that same will. He just can't begin to a chiang@alligator org think of losing." This season is going to be different for Florida offensive lineman Mike Pouncey. When his twin brother, Maurkice, decided to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft, it marked the first time the two wouldn't play on the same team. But Mike has taken full advantage of his alone time in the offseason and has begun to carve out his own identity. "I knew when I decided to come back to school that I was going to have to take on that role with (Tim) Tebow and (Brandon) Spikes leaving," Mike said. "I just accepted it and I've taken it on with a full head of steam." Mike isn't just stepping into his brother's leadership role from last season, he will also be moving one spot over from guard to center the position Maurkice played at Florida. The similarities don't stop there. Teammates hardly notice Maurkice is gone because the two have such similar personalities. Mike keeps the locker room loose with his sense of humor, but he also knows when it's time to work and get serious. "They are true twins," redshirt senior Carl Johnson said. "They are identical. Those two act the same no matter what they are doing. It's kind of like having a little bit of Maurkice here with Mike." In his UF career, Mike has played on both sides of the ball and earned a starting job as a freshman. Both things have helped him become one of the most respected players on the team. Mike's way of leading will be similar to that of a former UF player. "Mike is our head-and-above-shoulders With UF's new quarterback, John Brantley, possessing a quiet, low-key demeanor, Mike will be vital in helping maintain intensity on the offensive side of the ball. "I'm not going to be doing the hoo-rah kind of stuff," Brantley said. "But that's why we have other guys on the team that will do that stuff to get the team going." "I knew when I decided to come back to school that I was going to have to take on that role with (Tim) Tebow and (Brandon) Spikes leaving." Mike Pouncey Florida offensive lineman However, Mike knows there are other things that come with being one of the faces of the team. The offseason allegations involving his brother taking $100,000 from an agent before he left UF have been a wake up call. He said he thinks twice before doing anything because he knows he has a target on his back now. With his brother playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers, people are noticing a different mentality from the 6-foot-4, 310-pound senior. "I see a guy that's really set on being a leader," said offensive coordinator Steve Addazio, who also handles the offensive line. "I'm really enjoying that side of him. He's always had great personality, but it's kind of his own leadershipside personality coming out now. It's not a tag team -it's his deal." Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff With the departure of Tim Tebow and Brandon Spikes, UF center Mike Pouncey will be looked upon as the vocal leader of the team this season.

While he is not rated by Rivals.com, Purifoy garnered offers from Auburn and Alabama before choosing Florida. Later that day when UF held its Friday Night Lights camp, some of the top talent from the state and other prospects from around the country took the field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to try to impress the UF coaching staff.

Things to know before heading to you elcome to Florida. Take out your notebook, grab a pen and get ready to take your first class because I'm about to drop some knowledge on the incoming freshmen. One of the most important and fun elements of your college experience will be going to football games at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (we'll start the lesson here: we call it "The Swamp"), so I'm about to arm you with five helpful pieces of advice. I present to you: Swamptology 101. Make a block: The only thing better than watching a game with a handful of your closest friends is watching a game with 20 or 30 of your closest friends. Blocks aren't just for sororities and frats, anyone can form one by gathering some Gatoris and attending a meeting. The University Athletic Association will say you need a certain amount of people (I think it's 25. I don't remember because it's not important), but they're very good about working with you if you come up a couple people shy. Your high fives and chest pounds will significantly increase in a block. The one downside is taking on the role of block leader. For some reason, friends like to make it as hard as possible on you to get them their tickets. For all you block leaders out there, I've been in your shoes, and I'm sorry. Tailgate: Somewhere. Anywhere. But make sure you tailgate. Set up a grill, grab some beer and get a cornhole set because tailgating is just as much a part of gameday tradition as timeouts and touchdowns. The first two home games are noon and 12:21 p.m. starts, so I'm going to rock your world: postgame tailgating is not only OK but encouraged in this college town. Grill out and drink up bepiz!pza Kyle Maistril Kyle Points kmaistri@alligatororg Twitter @KMaistri fore heading home to shower and go out on Saturday night. There are plenty of great spots up and down University Avenue and various apartment complexes. Do your homework and find a spot. Don't get too drunk: I know, brah, kickoff isn't for another hour and you can pound six more Genny Lights (if you haven't experienced Genny Light, let's just say those six cans will set you back about $2), but you will regret that decision when you're going on hour three of standing on the bleachers in the 95-degree heat.

Don't be that guy who stumbles into the stadium, falls off the bleachers and throws up all over the bro wearing the Croakies and boat shoes in front of you. The dude in the red hat is your friend: When the game goes to a commercial (timeouts, end of a quarter, play under review, etc.), an official in a red hat will walk onto the field. This is a powerful man, despite his amusing attire, and the game will start when, and only when, he walks off the field. Why am I telling you this? After you ignore tip No. 3, you're going to want to milk those rare sit down opportunities for all they're worth. While your friends are all standing a minute longer than need be because they don't know when the action will resume, you can be sure to QMADX Z DP41 /NI / ( /# / E 1 10Me4 1V9OfPVA'D IA fkpE// A'lx/f I WA 1 #41rf N f1 6ef/ f~ 0r.946'/ 4,4f1f 0A F02 Y.r.Soe4 4-1 2'e X/0.00r Ae.o 00 e M f gf. 00 06ff P/C ACE SUSH .300 S.W. 16 TH A t'i Slai /lArg A. 89 4.4e# GAINESVILLE.

Learn the players' numbers: It's near impossible to read a name off a jersey from 85 rows up, so start getting to know the roster by numbers. Just because the running back takes the ball, that doesn't mean Jeff Demps was running it. And just because a defensive end sacks the quarterback, that doesn't mean it was Justin Trattou bringing him down. In football, you're allowed to do this thing called "substituting," so don't be the one cheering on John Brantley in the fourth quarter of a blowout when Trey Burton is in the game. For the returning classes, there's a lot of turnover on the roster, and it's insulting to both Andre Debose and everyone around you to keep calling him "Wondy."

Following their showings at the camp, a few UF commits reaffirmed their intentions to sign with the Gators, including Deland four-star athlete De'Ante "Pop" Saunders. Four-star tight end A.C. Leonard, who committed to UF in November, also reiterated his plans. "I'm still solid," Leonard said. Asheville, N.C., four-star defensive end Jeoffrey Pagan was thought to be wavering on his verbal to UF after telling the Asheville CitizenTimes in June that he was close to 50 percent on UF. But after Friday Night Lights, PaFootball gan said he remained fully committed to the Gators and would not make visits to other schools once the season began. In August, UF received a commitment from three-star defensive end Chase Hounshell, who will play offensive tackle in college despite seeing some time at defensive end in high school. The Gators also vaulted themselves to the top of a few elite recruits' lists in the wake of Friday Night Lights. "If they run the ball and win games I'm here," four-star running back Mike Blakely said. "As long as the running back gets the ball, (the offense) doesn't matter." Dwyer's Curt Maggitt, the No. 12 defensive end in the nation, also placed UF atop his list of schools, as did South Lake four-star cornerback Nick Waisome, who plans to announce his decision on Aug. 18.

52, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 Freshman trio expects to make immediate impact All three were ranked top-10 overall recruits By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org The Miami Heat have a Big Three, and now the Gators have theirs. "Ronald Powell is Chris Bosh, Sharrif (Floyd) is Dwyane Wade and I'm LeBron (James)," defensive tackle Dominique Easley said. The trio of freshman defensive linemen comes into its first season at Florida with a lot of hype. Powell, Floyd and Easley were respectively ranked the Nos. 1, 4 and 7 recruits of the 2010 class according to Rivals.com. But they aren't backing down from the pressure that comes with those accolades. "I do want to be the best defensive end in America," Powell said. "As far as expectations, my expectations are a lot higher than everybody else's." Defensive line coach Dan McCarney is known to rotate players on the defensive front throughout the game to utilize UF's depth, which bodes well for the three to receive playing time immediately. And they won't need to bulk up too much before they're physically ready to play. Powell has already benchpressed 225 pounds 21 times in one set, Floyd is tipping Football the scales at 300 pounds and Easley is not far behind him at 280 pounds. "I definitely expect to play," Powell said. "I can tell you one thing about this class, none of these guys want to sit and wait. None of us." But their playing time this season is expected to come as members of the second-string team. Their relationship began early. Following Easley's commitment to Florida after the Under Armour All-America Game on Jan. 2, he sold the school to Powell and Floyd. The two then followed in Easley's footsteps and chose Florida a week later at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. The trio comes in as five-star recruits, but that doesn't matter to them. "Take away all the stars, we don't care about them," Powell said. With defensive ends Justin Trattou and Duke Lemmens, defensive tackle Terron Sanders and nose guard Lawrence Marsh leaving after this season, the freshmen could be pushed to the forefront as soon as next year. "We can do a lot of great things here," Floyd said. "We can get a lot of stuff rolling and we can have the SEC scared of us. We can have it all." New era of Gators football will be uncertain but fun to watch elcome to Year 1, A.T. Many of you arriving at UF this year are no doubt lamenting the timing that caused you to miss watching the Tim Tebow-led Gators by one season, but there's plenty to look forward to in 2010. When I showed up on campus in 2006, it was for the start of Tebow's reign. And thanks to four years of dedicated procrastination, I'll get to see some of the post-Tebow era as well. This year's team is mostly a blank slate, and its development during the season should be fascinating to watch. New stars and leaders will emerge (well, they better, because if they don't, the Gators are headed to the Capital One Bowl or worse). And with Tebow gone, the dawn of a new age of Gators football is upon us. Two words have been closely associated with UF in the past four years: "Tebow" and "winning." The Chosen One boosted his program's profile and was the unquestioned face of the school during his time in Gainesville, and a new identity will be emerging soon. Changes are in store as far as this team's marketability goes, but there's no reason to think the wins will disappear. Urban Meyer's recruiting wizardry has kept a stockpile of talent on hand, and there should be plenty of motivation for these players to step out of the shadows of their predecessors. John Brantley will try to carve his niche in the pantheon of UF quarterbacks, and Mike McCall McCalim' It Like I See It nrmccall@alligator org Twitter @McCalinIt a stable of running backs figures to get a heavier workload now that Tebow isn't the first option on the ground. Meyer has something to prove, too. It's time to find out who was really running the show these last few years. When Meyer "retired," remember all those "He just doesn't want to coach without Timmy around" jokes? The easiest way to quash those rumblings is for Meyer to keep winning, and if he does, maybe it means we were watching the "Urban Era" all along and Tebow's role was overhyped. Or maybe we're entering the Age of Arrests, where players getting locked up (two so far this year!) will make UF the new Thug U without a Bible-verse-toting face hiding the ugly side of things. And maybe the whole concept of what era we're witnessing is just a concept conjured up by a bored columnist. But one thing is for sure: when you walk out of here in four or five years, the football program will look completely different than it did before you arrived. That transition starts now. What lies ahead is unknown, and while it doesn't carry the guaranteed wins of the recent past, it should be plenty entertaining. *Eu(mmgjtar Wizz Laptop Repir SPEr-Eilis Mention this OffrF get 5% Off 607 NW 13th St (352)378-4009 %Et.VnfC=ED Quality Therapy Sme1994 ROFESSIONALS & ASSOCIATES "OUR NAME SAYS IT ALL" r UF & SANTA FE STUDENTS, FACULTY, & STAFF SPECIAL!

MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 U NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 53 A speech Brantley should make, even if we don't want to hear it he best response to being asked how you will replace a two-time-national-champion, Heisman-trophy-winning quarterback whose likeness is being constructed into a statue in the very location you are asked to replace him: "First of all, I want everyone to know I could just as soon ignore this question. Or worse, I could pretend like I've never thought about replacing him. Anything negative I say about the guy -or even anything that can be PERCEIVED as negative (see: Thompson, Deonte) -will be blown out of proportion. But this isn't a new question. Everyone asks me this. Or at least everyone who recognizes me on the street, which is still a pretty small population, thank God. The answer is simple: I'm going to be as different from the other guy as I can be. And we will win a lot. Not despite our differences, but because of them. I know he was good, trust me. I watched him from the sidelines for three years. And I know you loved him. I've seen all those "15" jerseys in the stands, seen the "Marry Me!" signs held by 6-year-old daughters, even seen that wood carving of him on Newberry Road. And seriously, boosters? You're building a statue? As soon as he leaves? It's like I'm replacing a cross between Herschel Walker and Paul Bunyan. It's not the man himself I have to live up to. It's the man's legacy. Tyler Jett The Jett Stream tjctt@aIIigator org Twittsr @iamrtyler The mystique. The Focus-onthe-Family endorsing, J o c k e y wearing, bronze-statue legend. T h a t s not to discredit the actual player. He was an All-American. He scored about 700 touchdowns. He could rally a team at the half just by yelling uninteresting things like "Let's go!" and getting red in the face. I'm not going to do that. Not because it doesn't sound fun. Not because it doesn't work. But because he did it. I'm not him, and I'm sure you guys will remind me of that the moment I mess up, so I might as well distance myself right now. If I don't see a wide-open receiver, check the stadium's lighting. Chances are his shadow has made it too dark for me to see clearly. To be fair, he didn't put this pressure on me. You guys did. You guys fell in love with him. Fell in love with the way he lowered his shoulder, injuries be damned. Fell in love with the way he visibly appeared to hate losing more than anyone else. Fell in love with the way he stood for something and, in a society of camera phones with Internet access, never got caught doing anything worse than pose next to a girl with huge boobs. But what does any of that have to do with his play? Remember that national championship game in 2007, when he was just a backup and the starting quarterback completed like 70 percent of his passes? All most people wanted to talk about was the backup who went 1 for 1 with a 1-yard touchdown. So now he's gone, and you guys still want to talk about him. I expect it. Understand it, even. But you know our offense can be good without him. You are the same people who picked us third in the preseason poll. Don't ask me anything else about him, because if we succeed, it won't be because of him. But if we lose, it could be because of him. And, in a way, you."

54, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION 0 MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010 POSITION BATTLES TO LOOK OUT FOR SECOND CORNERBACK SPOT Contenders: Jeremy Brown and Moses Jenkins What they bring: A back injury has kept Jeremy Brown off the field in his first two years at UF, but his talent cannot be questioned. Before the injury, he was listed above Janoris Jenkins on the depth chart. If he can stay healthy, he is the team's second most talented corner. Senior Moses Jenkins brings veteran experience. With Joe Haden and Major Wright now in the NFL, the secondary is in need of a veteran presence. Although he is not as talented as Brown, he could fill that void. Our Pick: If Jeremy Brown can stay healthy, he will be the starting cornerback opposite of Janoris Jenkins. Coach Urban Meyer is known to play the most talented players regardless of experience. If he stays true to this methodology, Brown is the guy. DEFENSIVE TACKLE Contenders: Omar Hunter, Terron Sanders, Jaye Howard, Lawrence Marsh, Brandon Antwine, Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley What they bring: Omar Hunter had a nice spring and has lost 35 pounds since last season. Right now he is listed as the starting nose tackle. Terron Sanders (knee), Lawrence Marsh (hips) and Brandon Antwine (knee) are all coming off of injuries. All three say they are at 100 percent, but it will be interesting to see if they are ready for the season opener. Defensive line coach Dan McCarney called Antwine one of the most talented players on the team. Jaye Howard came to UF as a defensive end, but he has since bulked up to over 300 pounds and is now competing for the starting defensive tackle spot. He is quicker than most at the position because of his history as an end. Highly-touted freshmen Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley will need time to develop. Our Pick: This race is still up for grabs, but McCarney said Jaye Howard and Omar Hunter would be the starters if the season started today. The Gators like to keep their defensive linemen fresh with a constant rotation of players, so look for all of them to get a chance to play. MIDDLE LINEBACKER Contenders: Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins What they bring: By the eyeball test, Bostic is the prototypical replacementfor Brandon Spikes. His 6-foot-1, 238-pound frame makes him an imposingfigure, and he plays fast, too. He played in 12 games as a freshman on special teams and as a backup, leading his classmates with 18 tackles. Jenkins is smaller by about an inch and 15 pounds, and his best attribute is his speed. The two-way high school star has a knack for finding the action, and with a quick burst of speed he target. looks like a wrecking ball once he picks out a Our Pick: Jenkins has a lot to offer, and as linebackers coach D.J. Durkin said, he'll find a way onto the field. But Bostic seems like the better fit here because of his size, so we're giving him the nod. Expect to see both play a lot, though, as Durkin plans to rotate often.
